The tech-savvy students of SRM University-AP never rest in leisure. Their spare time is also loaded with fun-filled tech-based events. The Coding Club of SRM University-AP organised a first ever coding competition for the code lovers on March 4, 2020. Not merely for the engineers, but the competition was open for all the students. Irrespective of departments, approximately 59 undergraduates took part in this competition.
Code-lovers Competed for Excellence
The competition comprised 12 questions, of which some were multiple choice based and some were programming based challenges. Students were at liberty to choose any programming language as per their inclination. “Logic, Mathematics along with algorithmic thinking are the key factors for winning this competition”, said Dr Bhanukiran, Assistant Professor, Computer Science Engineering and organiser of the event. The students were given one and half hour to finish the competition. “Classroom studies are not everything. Students need to have some hands-on experience. Coding is something which cannot be learnt within the limit of books. This competition will give the students the exposure and experience of coding that they really need. It will also prepare the students for their future industry endeavours” added Dr Bhanukiran. Great excitement was seen among the participants. Charan Tangirala, the winner of the competition said, “It was a deeply enriching experience for us. Coding is something I’m very passionate about, and to be able to solve challenges within a specific period of time makes it more exciting. I am looking forward to more healthy competitions like this in the future.”
