Lesson1 and HW0
|We apologize for the technical difficulties during the lesson yesterday. We hope we have found a way around these by setting vjudge to use a different online judge in the following exercises.|
Some clarifications regarding the first lesson:
Due to the technical difficulties during the lesson, all solutions to problems from Lesson 1 will count as late submission. If you have solved these problems or wish to solve them in the coming week, please submit your solutions on the course website.
Submission instructions appear in the assignments tab.
You can check that your solutions are accepted on vjudge.net through the contest "234901 Lesson 1" even though it technically ended.
HW0 is now published, and is available on vjudge. You can access it through: vjudge.net > Groups tab > my invitations > 234901 Spring 2019. We invited all users that competed in the first lesson to this group. If you do not see this group, please send us an email with your vjudge username. Please complete this assignment before next lesson, and submit the solutions on the course website in the assignments tab.

Problem with displaying the problem
|We received a few e-mails from students that were unable to see the problem description on vjudge.|
If you are experiencing the same problem, you can see the problem description in the following link:

Starting Workshop in Competitive Programming!
|All registered students received a separate confirmation email just now. There was a very high demand for the workshop this year, and unfortunately not all students who asked to take the class had the chance to do so.|
The first meeting will take place on Tuesday (19/03/2019) at 16:30 in Taub 9.
In this meeting we will introduce competitive programming and the workshop, solve some questions together, and have a first warm-up competition in singles (we will team up later in the semester).
We ask you to bring a laptop to class. Please also open an account on vjudge.net . Try to choose an indicative username (or set a nickname), as it will show on the scoreboard in class.
To see that you know how to work with vjudge, you can join the competition '234901 registration' with the password 'start' and solve the (easy) problem there.
Note that attending this lesson is mandatory for taking the workshop. If you have a problem with attending or bringing a laptop, please let us know in advance.
May we all have a pleasant and fruitful semester!
The course staff.
In this class we aim to learn and experience fast and efficient problem solving in code using core computer science topics you learnt.
This class is very unique in structure. We will meet every week on Tuesdays at 16:30-19:30.
In each meeting we will first learn algorithms, principles and tips, and then gain experience of problem solving in teams: understanding problems, designing efficient solutions and implementing them.
To register please fill in the form (https://goo.gl/forms/tO1PZQo01KSG2tgC3) until February 25th.
Note that a prerequisite for this class is Algorithms 1 (234247), and we will use material taught in Algorithms and in its prerequisites (e.g., Data Structures) in class.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions (but please read the information sheet and the FAQ first).
We wish you a fruitful and enjoyable semester,
The course staff
