Cookbook update (new prizes!) | Reply
We keep writing recipes for Algorithm and Marathon chapters, and to provide a bit of extra motivation for you, we're adding short-term rewards.

The first 12 contributors to deliver an approved recipe for one of these chapters, will win a TopCoder t-shirt. The t-shirt will be shipped out as soon as the review board approves the recipe - no waiting for the book to be published!

Each of the eligible recipes must be done by only one person from start to finish; with optional comments from other members. This means that you have either to finish a recipe you have already submitted in round 1 or 2, or write a recipe nobody has started yet. If you want to write a recipe but are unsure what it should look like, check the accepted recipes and/or contact me for comments on the specific recipe.

We also want to remind you that the top 60 contributors on the Cookbook project receive a free copy of the Cookbook once it is published. So far it is virtually every competitor, so hurry up to grab your freebies!

Next posts in this thread will provide the list of recipes with notes on their status. "accepted" means that it is approved (and is getting a t-shirt ASAP); "started by" means that there is a draft of this recipe somewhere so its author can finish it; "not started" means that anybody can write it; "needs some thought" means that I still have to invent some way to fit the material of this recipe in actual recipe format and welcome any suggestions.

Also note that comments on existing recipes are welcome, however, minuses without explanation are not. If you minus a post because you dislike the poster, it's ok (from process point of view); but if you think the recipe is somehow flawed, please comment this, so that we can improve it (and honor your contribution appropriately).
