Hi! First of all, thanks CodingGame and everyone participating in it for such a great place for learning and having fun.
I participated in a couple of contests so far, did not have too much time to dedicate but had fun indeed. I always coded some deterministic heuristics with results that were… not really encouraging. It’s time to go to… the next level.
I think it might be beneficial for others in my condition to get hints from the gurus about:
- what is the best (simplest?) Bot Programming competition to start with either Genetic Algorithms or Monte Carlo?
- what do you recommend as a reading for getting started with the solution of the suggested competition in the bullet above? I know about the interesting tutorial on Genetic Algorithms by Sablier on Tech.io, it’s just that so far it was a bit difficult for me to bridge it to the challenges I competed in.
Thanks to anyone!
