Do you also help write CCC?

I believe the CCC is written by the uWaterloo Math and Computer Science Administration...I could be mistaken

I think you're right.

Well, that and a few exceptional grad students. So, no, I do not make questions for the CCC. I do, however, intend to get on the committee in the future (hopefully in the next few years).

I am planning on hosting other contests too. More on that another time, perhaps.

Hosting more contests? You can maybe work on ones with only one language allowed? And multiple ones of those types of contests...

What's the point of that? You can't judge a writer's skill effectively if you force him/her to write in an unfamiliar language. Likewise algorithm contests should allow as many languages as possible so that the participant's ability to express algorithms is not unduly constrained. (Giving problems that are trivial in some languages and not others, though, is considered bad form.)

I agree with bbi5291. Contests are there to test the participant's algorithmic ability. However, you could be referring to hosting 'challenges', like writing a program in Brainf**k, or Whitespace. If that's the case, I don't really know any such languages, so I'll stick to the algorithmic contests.

Or learn one of those languages.

Yes! That was what I was getting at.
