What our Chapters do

For us, it's about building a robust Competitive Programming culture and making it accessible to all. Let's take a look at what our Chapters do to make this come alive.

Here is a glimpse of the impact we made on the coding culture of the colleges in our 2020-21 Cohort!

Previous Cohort Highlights

The CodeChef College Chapters is a close-knit community where everyone shares highlights and best practices from their events. This pushes everyone to give their best and create a culture of learning.

Our previous cohort, which ran from November 2020 to July 2021, was really active and truly showcased their passion for spreading knowledge about Competitive Programming in their chapters. These are some of the statistics from the cohort:

  • 280+ College Chapters
  • 340+ Contests
  • 145+ Seminars
  • 140+ Speaker Sessions
  • 165+ Workshops
Organize Events

Throughout the year, our College Chapters have been exposed to the programming landscape's realities. CodeChef mentors Chapter Leaders so they understand the problem's enormity better. This helps them gain the necessary skills such as vision setting, planning, execution, etc to tackle this problem.

Our Chapters bring in some amazing energy on their campus through events like programming contests hosted on CodeChef, workshops, guest lectures, or fest collaborations that promote programming and inspire the students.

Few activities that they do:

  • Daily Problem Solving and Discussion
  • DSA Learning Sessions/ Workshops
  • Upsolving Sessions for Monthly Contests
  • ICPC Preparation
  • Closed Programming Contests
Top Events conducted by Chapters
  • DSA Carnival (Joint Event by Several Chapters) - 5500+ participants
  • Code Ensemble 2020 by CodeChef IIITN Chapter - 5500+ participants
  • Project Code 2.0 by CodeChef KJSIEIT Chapter - 2800+ participants
  • InfInITy-2k20 by CodeChef IIITP Chapter - 2000+ participants
  • Chef's Fiesta by CodeChef SRM KTR Chapter - 1500+ participants
  • Runtime Terror by CodeChef SCET Chapter - 1000+ participants
  • Coding Orientation by CodeChef NCU Chapter - 1000+ participants
Outreach and awareness

The success of an event is judged by the number of people who participate and enjoy taking part in it. The Chapter Leaders ensure a strong pre buzz and post buzz both online and offline to create max awareness. They also capture moments of the event to be put on social media.
