By flamestorm, 3 days ago, In English mesanu, SlavicG and I are very excited to invite you to Codeforces Round 928 (Div. 4)! It starts on Monday, February 19, 2024 at 06:35UTC-8. We would also like to give a very special thanks to the efforts of MikeMirzayanov and Vladosiya, who helped significantly with the preparation of the round!

The format of the event will be identical to Div. 3 rounds:

5-8 tasks; ICPC rules with a penalty of 10 minutes for an incorrect submission; 12-hour phase of open hacks after the end of the round (hacks do not give additional points) after the end of the open hacking phase, all solutions will be tested on the updated set of tests, and the ratings recalculated by default, only "trusted" participants are shown in the results table (but the rating will be recalculated for all with initial ratings less than 1400 or you are an unrated participant/newcomer). We urge participants whose rating is 1400+ not to register new accounts for the purpose of narcissism but to take part unofficially. Please do not spoil the contest for the official participants.

Only trusted participants of the fourth division will be included in the official standings table. This is a forced measure for combating unsporting behavior. To qualify as a trusted participant of the fourth division, you must:

take part in at least five rated rounds (and solve at least one problem in each of them), do not have a point of 1400 or higher in the rating. Regardless of whether you are a trusted participant of the fourth division or not, if your rating is less than 1400 (or you are a newcomer/unrated), then the round will be rated for you.

Thanks a lot to the testers: MADE_IN_HEAVEN, Gheal, Dominater069, Phantom_Performer, Vladosiya, htetgm, hbarp, tvladm!

We suggest reading all of the problems and hope you will find them interesting. Good luck!

UPD: Editorial is posted!

And now a word from our round partner – think-cell:

text

think-cell is the leading data visualization software for business presentations. Our mission is to offer the most intuitive user interface for generating complex data-driven charts and slides, while at the same time ensuring seamless integration with Microsoft Office. We work on challenging visualization problems, reverse-engineer Microsoft’s code, and reinvent how slides are created. think-cell is the only German company funding the C++ ISO committee delegation, so there is a good chance that components we invent will find their way into the standard.

Right now, we are looking for smart, creative C++ engineers with a solid theoretical background to join our engineering team.

Highlights of the role:

We use the latest C++ features as soon as the compilers support them. We’re not afraid of advanced template metaprogramming or macros when they avoid code duplication or lead to cleaner, more readable code. We prefer algorithms and ranges (esp. ours!) over raw loops. We take the time to deliver perfect code. We love refactoring and modernizing old code and introducing our own libraries. If we can do better than the standard library, we write our own! If we have done something cool, we talk about it at C++ conferences. If we are missing a C++ language feature, we write a proposal and present it to the C++ standard committee. Here is what we offer:

A competitive salary from the start and a raise to EUR 130,000 annually after only one year. Full support with relocation to Berlin or the option to work fully remotely. An apartment for the first month if relocating to Berlin. Lifestyle-friendly working hours, no deadlines, no overtime. No scheduled meetings. An international team of brilliant minds. A flat organisation with respectful colleagues and plenty of room for your ideas. A working environment that is driven by the strive for excellence. text

Join think-cell Round 1 that will start on Saturday, February 17, 2024 at 06:35UTC-8 for a chance to challenge your skills among other developers and win the following prizes.

  • First place: Apple iPad Air (10.9-inch iPad Air Wi-Fi 256GB),
  • Second and Third place: Apple Watch (Apple Watch Series 9 GPS + Cellular, 41mm Aluminum Case with Solo Loop),
  • 4-50 places: think-cell branded socks
  • 200 additional socks will be distributed randomly among the rest of the participants who solved at least one problem and for whom this is not the first rated round!

Let's recall 2023, shall we?

In this post, I want to summarize this year. You know, a lot of terrible things happen in the world, and personally, this year was the hardest and most sorrowful for me. But today, we'll remember something else. We'll remember what this year was like for Codeforces.

Recently, Codeforces turned 14 years old. Not bad, right? And for many years now, when asked "What is Codeforces?" the first thing I say is — it's a community!
