HackerEarth have three monthly contests, which they conduct every month.

  • Easy Contest (It usually has 5-6 problems and around 3 hours).
  • DSA Contest (It usually has 3 problems and 1 and half hours).
  • Circuits (It has around 7-8 problems and lasts for a week).

I eagerly look forward to these contests every month.

However, there was no Easy or DSA contest in February 2024.

I would just like to know if these contests were just being skipped for this month or whether they are being discontinued altogether. I really love these contests and would really not want them to be discontinued. (CodeChef have stopped Long Contests, LunchTime and CookOffs. HackerRank have stopped all their contests — Week of Code, Code Ad Infinitum, Hour Rank, Hack101, etc. I really would not want HackerEarth to stop their live contests too).

I am posting it here because I do not know any other way to reach HackerEarth. Please let us know.

Update on 8th March — I have sent an email to the HackerEarth support team. They have said that HackerEarth Monthly Challenges have been paused temporarily to revamp and enhance the experience. They plan to resume it later.

I'm glad you brought this up. I also frequently participate in HackerEarth Circuits and learn a lot from them. Even though some people may say they are standard problems, the adrenaline rush we get from solving a hard problem is just perfect for long contests. Hope they are not stopped.

Also pinging CodeChef_admin here like I know this, but are there any future plans to continue CookOff, LunchTime, or Long Contest. When I was a beginner Lunchtime and Long really helped me. Hope you guys will soon be able to hold one.

    Yes, I love participating in them as well. There is nothing wrong with standard problems. They have fantastic problems and I love solving them.

    I do miss HackerRank and CodeChef contest. I know HackerRank has no plans to continue and have moved towards recruitment. I hope HackerEarth continues contests.

      I agree.

      Also, I am mentioning coderdhanraj here. As I remember he was author in one of the problemset in HackerEarth, although not sure he is still with them.

        Sorry bro, I don't have any idea why HackerEarth contests are not happening this month as I was just a freelancer!

        The right person to tag here would be ujjwald7 as he is (was?) HE monthly contests coordinator, but he wasn't visiting CF in a while :(
