Further DevelopmentsJosse van Dobben de Bruyn wrote in as follows.
As a fan of programming contests and a former contestant at the NWERC and ICPC World Finals, one of my hobbies is to create alternative visualisations of the scoreboards. You may find the NWERC 2017 visualisations here (score progression) and here (timeline per team).
Users are encouraged to try out various mouseover and onclick events. For instance, you can make your favourite team (score-progression) or problem (timeline-per-team) stand out by clicking on it, and the tooltips for solved problems list that team's score up to (and including) that problem.
