Data Science Weekly Challenges: Week #2

March 31, 2017 guestblogger

The first round of Topcoder Open Algorithm Competition is right around the corner! But before we jump into the competition, there are a few things about Data Science Weekly challenges that you probably want to know.

Week #1 Challenge Results

To remind you, week #1 challenge was
…The lowest-rated member who gets a bye to Stage 2 of Algorithm Competition

The byes are announced (with a cutoff rating 1783 – reasonably close to my prediction), and the lucky winner is nims11!

Week #2 Challenge

Second T-shirt will go out to…
…The author of the fastest submission to Easy problem in Round 1A done in the language which has the least submissions done in it.

Good luck in Round 1A!
