Shiv Pratap Singh asked me a bunch of questions about the Facebook internship application. I can't be 100% sure about the application specifics, but 95% certain based on my past experiences.
Shiv: I am in 2nd year in my college and next semester I will be looking for internships. I saw from your linkedin profile you interned at FB. I gave FB Hacker Cup first time and qualified upto 2nd round. Can you help me for that in any way?
Keshav: FB likes people who are active in CP and perform well. Just submit your resume on their website. If you know anyone in FB (same college, etc), contact them and tell them you submitted your resume. But you don't need to do more than that. Just need to submit resume and tell someone inside the company to make sure it gets looked at. If they come to your campus, that would be the better place to do it.
Shiv: So, you also performed in hackercup to get internship? I have 1856 rating on CF just -44 from purple. I think my CP skills are good because CodeNation organized their Internship challeng...
Hey there! I’m Sumeet Varma. I am extremely interested in Algorithms and Data Structures and so I do a lot of competitive programming. I am also a big fan of Counter-Strike, Politics and reading random answers on Quora.

Hello everyone! I am Md Mahbubul Hasan from Bangladesh. I entered competitive programming world probably back in 2003 when I was in class 10. Unfortunately tutorials, editorials etc was not much available back then. Even there was not much of online competitions, except some regular monthly or bi-weekly contest at UVa, specially during the end of a year. It was difficult to access TopCoder from our country, even in 2005, because of slow internet and load shedding issues. We went to ACM ICPC World Finals in 2008 and 2009. Since then I am no longer devoted in programming contest as full time. But somehow I managed to float around in the same level through out the time. It was wonderful to compete with/against multi generation of contestants from our country. Nowadays I mostly take part in annual competitions where there is tshirt as prize. Even if it is not by performance, my luck does not disappoint me winning them in lottery!
