How the BACS Contest Helped Us Improve Toph
The engineering team behind Toph has been hard at work to improve Toph based on the experience of BACS Regional Programming Camps 2017 Selection Contest and the feedback from the participants.

Since this was our very first long contest, there were a few hiccups that we failed to anticipate. It was an interesting lesson for us when we realized that the entire team goes to bed at the same time - leaving clarifications unanswered for a long time :) But, if there is one thing we are good at it is learning from our mistakes.
ProgKriya May'16 Results
Thank you everyone for participating in the second ProgKriya contest on Toph. We have come to know that there were power outages during the contest due to storm in many places. We really appreciate that many of you have participated in the contest nonetheless.
Congratulations to Labib666, aaaaaa, midnightbird, Matrix.code and rumman13 for securing the top 5 ranks in ProgKriya May’16. And kudos to the amazing performance from everyone else as well. ProgKriya will reach out to the eligible participants shortly regarding their prizes.
There were 7 problems in the contest:
- Version Checker
- OCD Returns
- Biswa the Digital Gutibaj
- Convex Hull Generator
- GCD and NOD
… and only 1 was unsolved. Some of the problems turned out to be deceptively difficult. 122 participants managed to solve Version Checker perfectly.
Anyone who is familiar with sport programming is, very likely, already aware of the amazing community that has grown around it.
Toph is a sport programming platform aimed at those who find programming and solving interesting problems to be extremely gratifying. It is new, and so quirks and issues are bound to surface. However, we are working day and night to improve the platform, and your overall experience with it. If you have any feedback, drop us a line.
At this moment, Toph supports a handful of programming languages. We are actively working to increasing this number. At the same time, we will be tweaking the flags and various parameters of the existing programming languages to make sure that the compilers behave in as much of a sane manner as possible. During this time, we are open to suggestions for what programming language you would like Toph to support and how you think they should be configured.
