For information about the course, see Course Overview. To submit the source code of a problem that was accepted by the Kattis judge, find the problem in the Assignments. Make sure you are familiar with our policy on Collaboration and Cheating.
There is no textbook in this course. However, for those who prefer to learn by reading a book, we recommend Programming Challenges by Steven S. Skiena and Miguel A. Revilla ISBN 978-0-387-00163-0.
In general, there is one set of tasks for each lecture. The tasks are typically due four weeks after the lecture on the topic is given. The problems are due at 23:59 the day of the due date. Failure to meet even a single deadline will fail the course.
