Chef's 10th Birthday


A decade on, CodeChef is going strong!

It starts with a problem, go ahead solve it,
Your code has a problem? Try and resolve it.
That coveted green tick won’t come by too soon,
But when you finally get it you’ll be over the moon!

It’s been 10 great years of contests galore,
Of Lunchtimes and Challenges, Cook-offs and more.
Five amazing SnackDowns, and even a hackathon or two,
And we’re still committed to creating coding adventures for you!

Now we look to the future, exciting new chapters await,
We’re busy planning CodeChef’s fate!
But one thing’s for sure, we’ll always be,
The competitive programming platform with the best community!


CodeChef is celebrating 10 amazing years of contests, laddus and coding adventures! Now, on our milestone 10th birthday we’re embarking on a whole new chapter full of exciting surprises and all new experiences. Over the past 10 years, we’ve grown from a team of 5 people who worked tirelessly to deliver the monthly contests that you know and love, to a 20+ group of passionate folks who work on a diverse portfolio of projects from our flagship monthly contests, to our network of Campus Chapters; from our CodeChef for Schools initiative to the CodeChef Certification program.

Through this journey, our community has continually supported us and kept us going. Your enthusiastic comments, feedback, and suggestions, allow us to keep growing and developing CodeChef in new and innovative ways.

Now on our birthday, we’ve got a few party favors in store for you! Head over to the Birthday Treats tab to learn all about the cool goodies and treats we have in store for you.
