With our Programming Partner "Codechef", we hereby bring Round1 right in front of you to be grabbed sitting in your cozy couch. Round1 will be an online programming competition with a certain set of problem statements to be solved within a given time limit. The top 15 participants of Round1 will get a chance to rub their feet in an exclusive Round2, to be held at IIT Mandi during EXODIA, unique in itself, as it will follow an Elimination strategy under which the participant at the bottom of the Leader board will get eliminated at a regular time interval.
