Get mentored to Level up from 3 to 4 stars. Solve 3-5 problems per day with your CodeChef mentor, during the camp and improve your understanding of concepts. At the end of the camp, you will be able to level up in CodeChef.



Pre Requisites

  • This camp is for 3-star coders on CodeChef
  • Learners should have participated in atleast 20 rated Contests on CodeChef
  • You need to know C++ or Python to attend the camp.
  • Please do attend the session via a laptop or desktop and solve problems with the educator. Solving and practicing problems is very crucial in building your skills.
