Last Saturday, the 6th round of Code Knights was held, with a total of….. 17 participants. Same as last round, which is also the same as the round before. This round is significantly harder than the last round, which was the easiest round by far.
How hard? Well.. if you compare it to Round 3, its.. OK-lah. The winner for this round goes to anas_95 from IIUM, who also won last round. anas_95 was the only participant who manage to solve 4 problems, but he did not solve problem D. It’s nice to see someone from IIUM winning again, but its starting to get boring. Can someone else win next time? stdLn maybe? Heck, I’m even waiting for lim2481284 to make a comeback.
Last saturday, Code Knights Round 5 was held with a total of 17 participant… which is pretty much the same with round 4. The winner (finally…) goes to anas_95 from IIUM by the virtue of answering all problems faster with less penalty (which is 0). This round is (unfortunately) the easiest round ever with 6 participant answering all problems.
The second place goes to UncleWong from UM and the third place goes to joscmw95 from UTAR. foreveralone, winner of round 4 is at the fourth place. Notable mention includes two time winner lim2481284 from UNITEN which continues his effort of not even trying. You can find the dataset and pdf through the link below:
Last Saturday 8 PM (as usual), Code Knights Round 4 was held at… online. This time, we have 17 contestant including several new participant from UM, UTAR, UKM and others. lim2481284, the winner of the last 2 round seems to have lost his edge, finishing at the 14th place. He is probably busy and have other stuff to do. Meanwhile, shahril, the consistent second-finisher did not participate this time, breaking his consistent-second-place record from the first round and leaving HarshRalph to represent UiTM. The winner for this round goes to a newcomer, foreveralone from UM. He is a newcomer in a sense that he just registered in Code Knights, but not in the sense that he is new in competitive programming. Interestingly joscmw95 actually solved all problem first, but he submitted more wrong submission than foreveralone, resulting in an extra 13 minute penalty compared to foreveralone (each score point is approximately 1 minutes).
As you can see in the scoreboard, all problem was solved. Unfortunately, no single question was solved by everyone. Three participant managed to solve all 5 problems. All of these three participant are new participant. The difficulty of the problems this time seems to be more towards the easy side, but then again, if foreveralone, joscmw95 and UncleWong did not participate, (remember, they were new participant) no one would solve all 5 problems… except for lim2481284 or shahril (if they actually participate). In terms of balance, we probably need to work on making the difficulty ‘spread out’ more. Additionally, there were some issues with problem C and D.
The problemset can be downloaded through the link above. As usual, for IIUM student, the problems can also be accessed from the IIUM ICPC Team codeforces group. Now, if only they would actually practice, that would be great…. On to the problem analysis!
Update: Announcement on next round is available here
Last Saturday (2nd July), the second Code Knights was held from 10 PM to 2 AM. The winner goes to lim2481284 from UNITEN who quite handily solve all 4 questions. shahril and HarshRalph also solve all 4 questions, but not nearly as early as lim.
Congratulation to Lim Kien Seng from UNITEN. All participant managed to solve problem A and D. You can download the dataset through the following link:
Update: Announcement on round 2 is up. See here for details.
Last Saturday, the first round of Code Knights was held from 10 PM to 2 AM. We received 18 registration, however only 8 participated likely due to miscommunication of the contest time. The following are the final scoreboard of the round.
Congratulation to Omar Salim from IIUM who won the first round and is the only participant who manage to solve the ‘Fix the Fence’ problem in time. All participant managed to solve the FizzBuzz problem and most participant answered Yeoh’s Parking. You can download the dataset through the following link:
Last Sunday, IIUM Code Jam 2016 was held at TL-E5-01. 12 local teams participated in the competition. Additionally 12 guest team from University Malaya, UniKL, UITM Shah Alam and UKM participated online.
This 3rd April, ICTSS Education Bureau together with Electrical Engineering Student’s Association (ECESA) is organizing the second IIUM Code Jam. This time around, there would be 8 problem to be solved in 3 hour. In case you don’t know what is IIUM Code Jam, IIUM Code Jam is basically a competitive programming competition modeled after the ACM-ICPC (International Collegiate Programming Contest). In this contest, teams of 3 will compete against each other in a contest that test their problem solving and programming skill. Each team will be given 8 problems of varying difficulties in which they will have to solve through programming. The team that solve most problem win.
Have you ever wonder what its like to compete in a problem solving competition? Well now you can experience it yourself. ICTSS Education Bureau is organizing an ACM ICPC style programming competition called IIUM Code Jam. We are giving you an opportunity to experience an ACM ICPC competition without becoming really good at it at and the same time, we are also gathering the best programming teams from IIUM to crown one of them as the first ever IIUM Code Jam Champion. Whether you want to win or just have some fun programming, this competition is for you. Oh, did we mention that it is open for all IIUM student? The details are as follow:
Date: 9 May 2015
Time: 9 AM to 3 PM.
Venue: LR 14, Kuliyyah of Information and Communication Technology, IIUM.
