Speed Programming - ICPC

While most are dreaming of success, winners wake-up and work hard to achieve it.” This competition provides the students to believe in their programming skills and come up with their extra ordinary energy to compete with the country’s top programmers. A competition is based on the real world problems given on the spot to the participants, where they can come up with new ideas and proposed solutions through their codes. This competition is different from other programming competitions because participants utilize their abilities in solving industrial issues rather than simple logics. Flex your mental and motor skills in trying some of our expertly designed programming puzzles which are both devilishly complicated and challenging for even the most dexterous programmers. Brush up on your syntax if you are willing to accept the challenge of our Speed Programming module.

If you’re a participant: You need an arena to demonstrate your coding prowess. Most importantly, you want an opportunity to participate in an event that really brings your local developers’ community together: you’ll meet fellow hackers; see what they’re up to and show what you can do.Big companies are beginning to understand that hackathons offer the brand visibility they desire as well as the audience they’re trying to target – and that audience is quite receptive.Hacking begins with project introductions. Participants that bring projects to the event have an opportunity to briefly present over what they are working on at the very start of the event, so that other participants can join that project. At the end of the event, a wrap-up session gives each project a chance to demonstrate some accomplishments.
