I could find POI codes/editorials till 2016 here https://www.oi.edu.pl/l/40/
Any official/unofficial links for after 2016?
I recently recorded a video for my Arabic CP community about Psychological Concerns in Competitive Programming. The video is in Arabic, but thanks for ~3 volunteers, the video now has English subtitles. Also here are the slides of this video. The video has tips for both individuals and the communities.
Compete and have fun but take care of your mental health :)
We talk a lot about training and problem solving, but much less about Psychological Concerns in Competitive Programming that we face. Meanwhile, these Psychological Concerns slow the progress of many trainees.
I will record soon a video (in my Arabic Competitive Programming Channel). I would like to share with you the slides of this video. It might not be so clear (as they are just slides), but still could be useful.
Feel free to comment with whatever suggestions/corrections. I will record the video in Arabic as usual. If some volunteers provided sub-titles for it, I will share the video link.
Have fun but take care of your mental health :)
For TC SRM Editorials:
Starting from SRM 710, they are reachable from here
For SRMS <= 433, reachable from here
I used to use this link to get ones > 433, but seems the link stopped working very recently.
Any tips? Am I missing something? Tagging for some TC guys is appreciated
I used to encourage newcomers in our community to train using this sheet to avoid random training. By the end of the sheet, one will be very good up to Div2-D. It has been refined several times based on the received feedback.
Sheet link https://goo.gl/unDETI
Please, check out the sheet before reading. The sheet is
Complete and consistent roadmap for newcomers: What to solve & algorithms to learn in order
In the bottom row, there are different sheet pages such as Faq, Topics, CF-C2
CF-C1, C2 are (Codeforces Div2 C problems (or similar level from other OJs), but from easy to hard). Same for CF-D1, D2, D3
Covering most of the topics needed up to Codeforces Div2-D
Problems increase in difficulty per topic with intermediate easy/medium problems + ad-hoc problems
Speed problems to maintain speed goals
One can train in one of the following ways:
A) Blind-Order training style
Problems are distributed in sheets CF-A, CF-B, CF-C1, ....CF-D3
It targets learning the knowledge/skills in a consistent and balanced way
Every sheet page is on average harder than the previous sheet page
This is my recommended way, though most camps/training-approaches don't use this style
B) Topics-Based training style
See the sheet page (Topics1). It has the same sheet problems (CF-A to CF-D3) ordered by category and level, around 950 problems. Also checkout Topics2 page
Ideas Quality column: P5 (important), P4(very interesting), P3(interesting), P2(good), P1(ok), Empty (normal)
You can train using Blind-Order, and use Topics page as a guide to skip some problems
Advantage: Mastering the algorithm till solving some hard problems in a short time
Disadvantage: Discovering the algorithm behind the problem is an important skill. Given that you know the topic, you lose a good space to improve this skill
Disadvantage: Being in the mode of specific algorithm lets you solve many of it easier. However, when solving in real contests, your mind is not so active on the specific topic
For more details, read and explore the repository
Have fun :)

Registration is opened as long as it is still opened in the form (I receive emails whenever someone applies).
I am a Coach in the ACM ACPC (Arabian) Region. For more about my competitive background.
This is an announcement for Online Free Coaching (Actually, a supervision not coaching).
