FBHC2017 Finals

There was one quite important competition that I forgot to mention two summaries back: Facebook Hacker Cup 2017 onsite finals took place on June 14 (problems, results, top 5 on the left, analysis, my screencast). In this round I have managed to make three different bugs in my solution to the second problem and the way those bugs combined led to my program passing the samples almost by accident, but of course it did not pass the final testing. On the bright side, not spending more time on this problem allowed me enough time to solve all other problems, so maybe the three bugs were actually a crucial component of the victory :)

Thanks for reading, and check back for the hopefully more complete next week's summary!
