AutoCompete, a Programming Contest

AutoCompete is an monthly programming contest organized by Steve Geluso put on by Flatiron School held in Seattle, WA. Teams of up to three people work together competing to solve the most problems in 90 minutes. The problems come from a problem packet custom created each month. Teams can use whatever programming language they want. The problems are designed for programs to read from standard input and write to standard output. Check out the problems from previous events!

Previous Problem Sets

Flatiron Seattle AutoCompete Rules

  • Up to three people per team
  • Only one computer per team
  • Pen and paper will be provided
  • Internet access is allowed (though probably mostly unuseful)
  • No third party libraries (no gems, no pip, no npm, etc)
  • You may solve problems in any order
  • Rankings are ordered by the number of problems solved and time taken

Sample Boiler Plate

All of the programs are required to read input from STDIN (standard input). Each language has it's own way of accessing this input. Here are samples to get you started. You can use this boilerplate to build the rest of your programs around, or read from STDIN any other way you wish.

If you have a text file called input and a program called foo (in whatever language) you can have the program read the file input by executing the following in your bash terminal. The cat command prints the contents of the input file and "pipes" the output as input for your program. Your program reads from STDIN and reacts to the input.

cat input | python foo.py
cat input | ruby foo.rb
cat input | node foo.js

Try this out to make sure your programs execute correctly!

Python 3

import fileinput
for line in fileinput.input():
  print(line)

Ruby

lines = ARGF.read.split("\n")
lines.each do |line|
  puts line
end

JavaScript

const readline = require('readline');
const rl = readline.createInterface({
  input: process.stdin,
  output: process.stdout,
  terminal: false
});

const lines = []
rl.on('line', (line) => lines.push(line));
rl.on('close', (line) => execute(lines));

function execute(lines) {
  console.log(lines)
}
