PROMED @ CS 08 tried to follow some of ACM-ICPC concept but I think there are lot of aspects that should be improved.
- They should explain clearly in the contest rule about the IDE that will be provided during the contest. Instead of Java (JDK 1.5), they should mention Java (Eclipse/NetBeans IDE) in the contest rules to clear misunderstanding of participants who used Java to think that they are only allowed to use Notepad while C++ participants can use MS Visual C++!
- They should provide Eclipse IDE too because most of Java developers preferred Eclipse more than NetBeans.
- I don't know whether the judges have their own solution and answers in Java because Java and C++ treat floating number differently. If I'm wrong please informed me.
- The lab condition: They should place the monitor at the centre of the table. They have two computers per table, why not using dual-monitor cloned view?
