Friends, Comrades and Colleagues!

Have you noticed or remembered that Facebook Hacker Cup starts this weekend (21st of November 2014).


It is not as ugly as it sounds. Participants have about 3 days to solve one or several tasks (each task could be solved in roughly 1 hour). Solutions are not checked - instead one only needs to download test data, process them with written solution and then upload back again.

Tasks are somewhat algorithms-related, but at first rounds they are simple enough to be solved even by school pupils and typical industrial programmers. It is funny enough according to my experience.

Of course some T-shirts and some money are announced.
