Recently, I participate in the awesome coding contest The Accountant in CodinGames. This contest was a 2-week optimization challenge, where it was not necessary to succeed all of the given test cases to have a good score. Unfortunately, I didn't use the 2 week because I was travelling. I only used 5 days.
It was my second time in this kind of contests, and I finished in the position 1774/6214 ( you can see the report in The Accountant report for my user cguzman ). Not so bad for a second time :)
I am not an expert in Genetic Algorithm (GA), but I decided to implement one for this solution. Thus, now I will explain how was my approach for this challenged.
