  • Winning Competitions: Does That Make You a Good Programmer?

    Many people claim that winners of various competitions aren’t good at practical tasks, even prominent people in the field of IT, such as Peter Norvig. The discussion of this question flared up again in the comment section of a video (in Russian) on the phenomenon of Russian programmers that was published on the Russians Are Ok YouTube channel. In two weeks, more than 215,000 people have watched it. I wrote a big text (in Russian) about this discussion but now I’d like to summarize it here as well.
