Facebook Hacker Cup 2013 Qualification Problems

As in the previous contests, the 2013 Facebook Hacker Cup is open to programmers aged 18 and older from around the world (apart from Quebec and a few other places) and involves demonstrating accuracy and speed in solving problems.

The online part of the contest starts with a qualification round that lasts 72 hours and presents hopeful hackers with three problems. Every competitor who correctly solves at least one problem will advance to the online elimination rounds which are held on February 2nd, 9th and 16th and progressively weed out contestants.

The Facebook Hacker Cup is one of the very few competitions that actually is about programming skill in the sense of thinking up algorithms and implementing them. If you want to see the type of problem that contestants will be facing, problems from last year's qualification round are available to all those who register for the competition - and if you've previously registered you'll be automatically registered for this year's event.

The first of the three qualification round problems was a simple little numerical problem: determine how many distinct ways a number can be written as the sum of two squares.Though the event's tagline was "too hard for brute force, switching to dp," brute force is perfectly capable of answering this question for the given upper bound of 231 - 1.Still, the Facebook event's comments are filled with people complaining that their code takes hours on large numbers, which baffles me.

Last weekend I participated in the qualification round of the Facebook Hacker Cup 2014. The Facebook Hacker Cup is an annual worldwide programming competition where programmers have to solve several problems within a limited amount of time.

"The competition will be held in two rounds starting with an online qualification, out of which 25 of the best hackers are then flown by Facebook to their headquarters in Menlo Park, CA," Facebook said.

The data source for number of votes is taken from and imported into Google Fusion Tables.The data source for the administrative boundary map is taken from PemiluAPI.I manually reconcile the IDs from shapefiles in the PemiluAPI with the IDs from datasets for each level of administration (for more details, click File -> About this table):ProvinceRegencyDistrictVillage (only Surakarta is available)2 comments: Thursday, October 24, 2013 ACM ICPC Jakarta 2013 - Problem J - Alien Abduction AgainLast year contestants (or contestants who practiced with last year ICPC Jakarta 2012 problemset)should immediately know, only by looking at the problem title, that this problem is related to last yearProblem H - Alien Abduction.Also, they should have guessed that this problem is either as hard, or harder than last year :D.

Deprivation index was assessed in this study as a measurement of socioeconomic status. New Zealand Deprivation Index 2013 (NZDep2013) combines census data relating to home ownership, housing, qualifications, income, employment, access to transport, communications, and family structure [63]. NZDep2013 provides a deprivation score for each meshblock in NZ. Meshblocks are the smallest geographical area defined by Statistics NZ, with a population of around 60 to 110 people. NZDep2013 groups deprivation scores into deciles, where 1 represents the areas with the least deprived scores and 10 the areas with the most deprived scores. Therefore, a value of 10 indicates that a meshblock is in the most deprived 10% of areas in NZ. 076b4e4f54
