Q&A Session with Sumeet Varma, Codeforces India #1by Keshav Dhandhania
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.
My team (FruitSalad) came 1st in ACM ICPC ‘17 Kharagpur Regionals, 2nd in Kolkata Regionals and 7th in India Finals and we have qualified for World Finals. Also, I have been Red on Codeforces and the highest rated Indian programmer on Codeforces, Hackerrank and Topcoder in the past.
Currently, I am doing an internship at Directi (Bangalore) as a part of my project for final semester at DA-IICT, Gandhinagar.
Ask me anything!

What kind of topic will appear?
A variety of mathematical or programming related top...
