problems for programming skills

Post by DJWS » Sun Jan 30, 2011 9:20 am

Hi,

I am trying to collect the problems (in UVA's problemset) that can be used to practice the programming skills. Lesser the algorithms, and more the architectures. I have already found some: 10966 (design a simple OS shell), 790/10258 (simulate the contest scoreboard). These problems are really good materials for starters who learns developping softwares/applications. Anyone know more this kind of problems in this OJ? Very appreciated. :)

Mr. Felix Halim has a great collection and classification about these types of problems.
Go to http://felix-halim.net/uva/hunting.php , put your uva username in the box and go ahead, it will show your statistics, now on the right side of "Competitive Programming Exercises" section, you will see two labels:

"1. Introduction"
"2. Data Structures and Libraries"

You can click on them to expand and you will find what you want from uva.

For other judges like SPOJ [ http://www.spoj.pl/ ] there is not much resource about their problems around.

You can also use TopCoder [ http://www.topcoder.com/tc ] and check problems from past srms.

As far as I know, these problems can be called ad-hoc (no specific algorithm needed).

Happy Coding!
