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


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.
