Invitation to CodeFest - the international online coding festival of Computer Engineering Society, ITBHU

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.

Here is a brief description of the constituent online
events:

  • Mathmania:
    A mathematical puzzle contest that puts mathematical and computational skills
    to test.
  • Main Contest on Feb 27,10:00 pm
  • Manthan: An
    algorithm intensive programming contest that would require coders to tailor
    existing standard algorithms.
  • Main Contest on Mar 13,12:00
    pm
  • Perplexed:
    A programming contest, aimed to test the knowledge of C, wherein codes will be
    rewarded against syntactic constraints.
  • Main Contest on Mar
    11,12:00 pm
  • Ratespiel:
    A technical contest covering different areas of Computer
    Science.
