“Our experience as a CodeChef College Chapter has been amazing, unforgettable, and informative. We got exposure to managing events, holding sessions, and mentoring juniors. The competitive coding culture in our college has improved significantly. CodeChef was very supportive throughout the journey. It made us grow and shine in our college.

“CodeChef College Chapter Initiative has provided us with an opportunity to gain experience in the field of team management, marketing, business, and much more, which we cannot have achieved by our regular curriculum. We have learned the art of interacting with people as professionals. Inevitably there were ups and downs along the way, but we learned how to overcome them as a team. The College Chapter Initiative motivated us to not only sharpen our competitive coding skills but also allowed us to share our knowledge with the students of our college. It has been a memorable journey till now, and we are eagerly looking forward to the next year!”
