The Event

Codefest 2017 presents Perplexed - the constrained programming event. The questions here will bend your mind in different ways - this is not your normal coding contest! After all, tackling various kinds of situations and challenging constraints is what makes programming an art!
This contest will be an individual event with a duration of 5 hours. With the creativity that the problems will naturally encourage and INR 50,000 at stake, there is absolutely no reason for a programmer to not give this one a shot!

Innovate or stay perplexed!

Scoring

  • Each challenge has a pre-determined score.
  • A participant’s score depends on the number of test cases a participant’s code submission successfully passes.
  • If a participant submits more than one solution per challenge, then the participant’s score will reflect the highest score achieved. In a game challenge, the participant's score will reflect the last code submission.
  • Participants are ranked by score. If two or more participants achieve the same score, then the tie is broken by the time of the first correct submission of the last solved problem.
