# December Lunchtime - my first Codechef contest

I'm happy to announce upcoming Codechef December Lunchtime as the setter of all the problems in the contest. This is my first contest on Codechef and for sure not the last one

The contest starts on Saturday December 31 and have 4 problems to solve, 2 easier and 2 harder ones. Some graph theory might be useful while trying to solve them If you want to finish the year strong, this is a nice possibility.

After the contest my editorials will be posted on discuss.codechef.com as always.

Happy coding and good luck!

# My Problems in HackerEarth June Circuits

June Circuits is live for a week now. Today, the last and the hardest problem created by me went live. It is called Leaf Village and Democracy and the task is to handle a set of upcoming queries. I find the problem really good, especially for these of you looking for not so standard techniques.

There are still 2 days for solving any problem from the contest, so take your chance and do improve your total score

# May Easy 2016 by HackerEarth with my problems

Hi all,

May Easy Contest by HackerEarth is taking place on May the 1st at 6:00pm CET. Contest duration is 3 hours.

I created all the problems in the contest and it was a lot of fun to do it.

There will be 6 problems to solve, all algorithmic ones, especially targeted for beginners. However, I'm pretty sure that any participant will find them interesting to solve, because only 5 of the problems have a standard partial scoring and there will be one approximate problem.

A little hint for you, be prepared to use some math in the contest

As the setter of all problems int the contest, I want to thank the problem tester and editorialist Bohdan (I_love_Tanya_Romanova) for working with me to prepare the contest. It was a pleasure as always!

As a tradition in Easy Contests, the top 5 beginners will receive HackerEarth T-shirts.

Good luck and see you on leaderboard!
