Assalamualaikum and Sawadhikhap..
For this entry I would like to share about mathematical programming contest. ACM-ICPC, Al-Khawarizmi, and Aturkreatif. Have you heard about it? Actually I just entered one of the competitions I mentioned before, it quite tough. Some of the questions given were clearly stated the objective but having a few conditions that need to follow were challenging.
Special thanks to my University for sponsored me and my friends to participate, lecturers who highly motivated us and my beloved friends. Although our team couldn’t managed to win the competition we have something to share with you guys for the future planning.
- Most of the participant who managed to solves many problems usually active in Top Coder. Do visit this website and become a part of that community.
- For the beginners who want to see the example and answer of the problem, you can always visit to this site. It contains past set of acm icpc problem.
- There is one reference book that commonly used to solve this problem. Programming Challenges: The Programming Contest TrainingManual.
- Next is to learn from our colleagues in other University.
I hope some of these tips can help you in the future competition. If you want to try in the pc square environment, I can configure it for you(just for my university). =P
