So we’re joining the next contest: in the warm-up of this year’s Challenge24, team CoreCoder made it to rank #6!
The Challenge24 is especially interesting because it’s not only algorithmic problems. The topics are of a wide variety. There are optimization problems, exercises in image and sound processing, compiler design, game theory etc.
As organizer of Austria’s largest programming contest, we are also top-motivated to run for a place of honor in other contests, such as lastly at HackerRank. The 24-hour-contest Challenge24 in Budapest is a good place for that with its coding-intensive exercises. In the last years, multiple teams comprising solely Catalysts members had participated. One of them—team CoreCoder—made it to place 19 two years ago, and last year even on place 11!
We cross our fingers for our eager heads on February 8 for the pre-final and subsequently for the final round!
