The contest seems to have been delayed . It shows start time as 22:30 IST now instead of 21:00 IST . Delayed by 1:30 hours . @anton_lunyov is participating so the competition will be tough :slight_smile: . He is a finalist for this year’s Face Book Hacker Cup . Best of luck @anton_lunyov for that and this one too .

Let me correct you finally.
I did not participate at Facebook Hacker Cup this year :slight_smile:
Even at qualification round.
I don’t know for sure but it seems that I even didn’t have right to do this as I’ve already signed my offer with Facebook.

@EgorK also will participate at Insomnia.
So the contest indeed will be tough.

@anton_lunyov : Okay , thanks for correcting . So its some other anton in facebook finalists list .

Yes, he is Anton Raichuk, known as RAVEman at TC and CF.

@anton_lunyov , @EgorK : Are you people participating as a team or individuals . I am participating as an individual . @anton_lunyov , can you share your personal email address with me . You can mail it at vineetpaliwal@gmail.com , if you don’t want to post it here . I need to discuss some career related things . I am an Indian and I have some boundations due to which I can’t work outside my country and not even outside my city / region in India . That’s why I was unable to appear for Facebook , Google , Amazon , Microsoft , Yahoo interviews because even though these companies have offices in India they are not in my region . I have worked in Microsoft India earlier but then I shifted back to my region because the location didn’t suit me and the family needed me . You may be useful for me in getting some career guidance and a couple of other things which I don’t want to mention here . So please if possible share your email address with me . I will not disturb you much , just a mail once in a while .

EgorK has solved all practice problems. That’s why I made a conclusion that he will participate. Of course we will participate individually. I hope this time I finally beat hims since at many last similar contests I’ve finished second after him.

I don’t think I can help you - Facebook is my first programmer job ever.
I am mathematician currently working as an engineer at the research institute.
I have no ideas about other programmer’s job stuff.

@anton_lunyov : The contest has started at 22:00 itself .

Other competitors might be blaming the OP for tagging it with editorials, because now they ain’t gonna have a chance. Anton is there! :stuck_out_tongue:
Good Night, and all the best to all insomniacs!
