Announcing start[c]up

SingleStore is excited to announce start[c]up – a programming competition, hosted by Codeforces with an onsite at SingleStore HQ in San Francisco, California.

Start[c]up consists of two rounds. Both rounds will be prepared by SingleStore engineers: pieguynika,exod40SkidanovAlex and dolphinigle.

Round 1 is online and takes place on July 13. Round 1 follows regular Codeforces rules and consists of 5 problems. For this round, the complexity of the problems will be comparable to a regular Codeforces round. There are no eligibility restrictions to participate in the round.

Round 2 takes place on August 3, consists of 5 problems, and uses regular Codeforces rules. The complexity of the problems is higher than a regular Codeforces round. Only people who finished in the top 500 in Round 1 can participate. The top 100 in round 2 will receive a start[c]up T-shirt.

For Silicon Valley residents, SingleStore will be hosting up to 25 people on-site during the second round. The winner of the on-site round will be awarded a special prize.
