How I scraped 500k codes written by coders from the internet?
I always wanted to pursue competitve programming and get into the hall of fame of society by bagging a job at one of those over hyped companies(read startups). I started off in my first year of university only to spend two years doing something which was not really my thing. Four years later, I'm using something I really like doing (Python) to draw insights on how people actually fare in competitive programming.
This is the first story I tell in my talk on Visualizing the world of competitive programming using Python.
I first dropped a proposal, pretty confident that it wouldn't be among the list of selected proposals. The organizers must have seen this as something new and sent me a mail saying I'm scheduled to give a talk. That is when I started working on my talk.
The proposal covers two parts:
- What can you infer from the codes I scraped.
- How can you repeat a similar project on your own.(+ some tips)
The talk is now on Youtube. Let me know in the comments if I could derive more insights out of this. Also let me know your thoughts on the talk .
