17. Catalysts Coding Contest in Vienna, 2013-10-11


I’m feeling fine, I won just now. It was a thrilling exercise, also exciting until the end, because I didn’t notice my large distance to the second place. Yes, it was a great contest. Programming has always been my passion, and I use the coding contests to have fun. Today I’m very satisfied with my 11th place. Well, we have programmed it as a pair, and it’s somehow harder. Will you participate again? Sure! What was your performance last year and now? Well, last year was 4th place, 1st place and
3rd place, so I was open for at least the 2nd, so I can
fill the gap. Super, we’re really satisfied with our ranking. Altogether quite nice and interesting, though a bit complicated. So how are you feeling now after the contest? Relieved. — Quite relaxed, actually. It was very demanding. I don’t see that as a bad idea. In the “real world”, i.e. in project business, you never get accurate or consistent instructions. It was quite okay. A bit mathematically, it’s just the mix of mathematics, tinkering and so on. But next time, on 16th of may…? I think, we will win. I feel convinced. Sure! I’m almost done with my studies then…
