Good-to-know-facts, FAQs, Agenda, about CCC

Catalysts has been expanding Europe’s biggest Coding Contest to a worldwide level since last year. On

March 22nd, 2019, coders from around the world will compete at the 29th CCC.

There will be two tracks, the already well-known classic Catalysts Coding Contest (CCC) as well as the School CCC. The School CCC is organized only in selected venues on the same day, with an

example for pupils (up to the age of 19 years & for newbies). In the past many pupils also attended the classic CCC right after participating in the school CCC. A lot of them could easily keep up with students or practitioners.

FAQs

The best way go through this doc and then if you still have questions contact us via team@codingcontest.cc. We will publish all questions and answers here. During the contest, we’ll answer your questions via gitter.

We will provide internet access at each location, but you have to stick to the fair use policy (pages like Stackoverflow etc. are allowed, streaming and excessive downloading of content is forbidden).

The upload is an option not a must have! In case you don’t have a source-code to upload you can’t cash the bonus time.

We don’t expect a polished source code. But it’s interesting though from a scientist’s point of view how the best solutions were developed.

Nothing, it’s fine.

Usually, we count every failed test (in that particular case every value). Therefore, it can be wise to commit not all results at once. Remember for every failed test (value) you get a penalty minute!
