International communities have one very remarkable initiative that began several years ago on Stack Overflow in Russian: we celebrate the beginning of the new year with a contest for the best questions and answers with the algorithm tag. The contest lasts for all of January and consists of two sessions: from January 1 to January 10 and from January 11 to January 31. Each session has eight nominations.
Many of us recall our university years with nostalgia. It is especially pleasant to remember how we were studying disciplines like discrete mathematics, the theory of algorithms, programming... I think, at work we often have a lack of academic tasks: sorting, searching for elements, permutations, etc. Questions and answers on the algorithm tag might help to fill this gap.
Please join us in congratulating the New Year Algorithm 2019 winners!
