CodeFest - Online Coding Festival by Computer Engineering Society, IT-BHU

Hello,

We are delighted to inform you that Codefest’11, the annual International online coding festival of Computer Engineering Society, IT-BHU ,
has been unveiled. CodeFest is a unique fest wherein concepts of mathematics, logic, artificial intelligence, algorithms, language syntax, etc. are required to be deployed in programming; these concepts manifest themselves in solving problems effectively and efficiently!

CodeFest was started last year. CodeFest’10 was a phenomenal success with participation from all over the globe. CodeFest’11 is geared up with some new and pepped up events, while maintaining the integrity of its standards.This year CodeFest has associated with Technex’11, the annual all India Technical Festival of IT-BHU, to expand its horizons.

Here is a brief description of the constituent online events:

  • Mathmania: A mathematical puzzle contest that puts mathematical and computational skills to test.

  • Manthan: An algorithm intensive programming contest that would require coders to tailor existing standard algorithms.

  • Perplexed: A programming contest, aimed to test the knowledge of C, wherein codes will be rewarded against syntactic constraints.

  • Ratespiel: A technical contest covering different areas of Computer Science.

  • Virtual Combat: An educational game wherein teams of programmed robotic tanks will fight the battles for glory. Codes Do Fight! Watch this out.
