Around June 2016, I created my site and utilized it as a personal blog. Throughout the years it had gradually evolved into what you are seeing right now. The site itself had undergone a few refurbishments, which changed its appearence profoundly.
During the time I participated in Olympiad in Informatics, I gained a certain fetish for Splay Trees, given its ease of demonstration and powerful functions over other data structures. Most of the time it yielded incorrect answers, so I gave myself a name JeffSplayWithTrees, also abbreviated as jeffswt.
So I spent 5 years’ time learning and training in the expertise of OI, from Junior high through Senior high. These 5 years had been the most fulfilled days by then, when I attended HS Affiliated to Renmin University, China.
Tsienyi Lawyer had been our coach all those days, to whom I shall dedicate sincere gratitude, whom had always been a professional teacher.
I left OI in June 2017, around 1 year after the birth of this site, but my life on Computer Science shall continue, and shall thrive for the longer.
These are links to some of my friends, which you may find helpful (sorted in alphabetical order).
