Competitive coding

Competitive coding


Get started with competitive coding!

This project is aimed towards people who want to better themselves in the sport of competitive programming. The plan during the summers would be to get people familiar with standard data structures and algorithms. Apart from this the project would require the mentees to give a good amount of time to practice problems on various online judges like Codeforces, Codechef, SPOJ etc.

Proposal

Mention your familiarity with C++ and algorithms in the proposal. Also if you already practice on some online judge like codechef, codeforces, hackerearth, do provide the link to your profile on those judges. If active on GitHub, provide link for that too. Also mention what other activities you are taking up in the summer and how much time you will be able to devote per week for SOC.
