A technical festival without a coding competition sounds incomplete. Doesn't it!
So here is a chance for everyone to brush up their minds for a challenging programming contest with the freedom of coding in whatever language they want.

This year we are planning to host the Code JAM on Stay tuned for more updates about the event!

Code chef, A "Directi" initiative, is India's first non-commercial platform to promote programming through online coding competiton, which are held monthly in more than 35 different programmming languages. It not only provides an arena for practice and learning but also gives the programmers a chance to compete with their peers from all over the corners.

  •  A purely online programming event in which you can participate from anywhere across the nation.
  • Freedom to use any one of the 35 popular programming languages shortlisted by CodeChef team, including C, C++, Java, Perl and more!

In the given time they'll be expected to give as many correct answers as possible.

Judging Criteria:

The evaluation of the answers will be based as per the following criteria:-
Number of correct solutions submitted in the given time. In case of tie, team completing same number of solutions earlier wins.
