My girlfriend is also into programming and will be attempting the challenge.
I’m just wondering what level of help is acceptable and what is not.
Basically what I want to do is help her understand the map and show her how she can get the data to use for the AI. Along with an example or two (This is how you build, this is how you count the buildings).
Just getting her off.
Now I admit she is beginner when it comes to algorithms so she will likely not submit her bot. But I cannot say I know how she will fair.
I assume that I could give her advice and suggestions as we go along but not actually write the actual bot for her?
Due to the nature of this challenge, It is highly unlikely that she will manage top 8 at the end regardless. I mean, I don’t even know if I will make it. Though I will try.
Just wondering because if it does happen that she sees the challenge and actually goes far with it. I want to know what to be careful of. She has a lot of free time so she would be able to put a lot of hours into it. And she did say that she will beat me in the future. So that’s cool.
Just wondering about this. I do not want to get to the challenge and get suspected of foul play.
Because if in future boyfriend and girlfriend / (husband and wife) both make finals. Some might find it strange.
Well, hope you all are good. I’m starting my bot this morning. I cannot wait to see how this turns out…
