From 24 to 27 July, VK.com and Codeforces hosted the VK Cup Programming Championship, a competition for young programmers where single person programmers and teams of two could participate. The total number of participants registered was 3631, which is truly one of the most impressive figures for this kind of tournaments.
The turn of events was very tense, problems were solved very quickly so the scoreboard kept changing all the time. Nevertheless, the winning team was Never Sorry (Gennady Korotkevich, Niyaz Nigmatullin).
