Google Code Jam Round 1 Qualifications

Posted 08 May 2011 - 11:02 AM

The google code jam qualifications started Friday evening and lasted until Saturday evening (for us in the US). Just wondering if anyone else here participated and how did you fare?

CodeJam

I didn't have much time since I had to move furniture and other fun non-programming related stuff like that, however I did manage to find enough time to make 30 points which means I qualify for the next round at least. So how about it, how'd you do? What's your opinion on the challenges that were given?

70 points for me. I failed on problem d. Contest started 1 am in my local time. I tried anyway and it took me an hour to solve problem A *gasp*. I shouldn't have tried being sleepy and drunk.
So I decided to read the other problems and go to sleep. Woke up with an (the xor) answer to C in my head (yeah, who says sleep time is wasted time :-)) and B wasn't as confusing.
But I didn't get D anyway :/

Congrats on the 70.

I just did A, small and large, and just the small on B since I was short on time and those looked easier to me than C or D.
