SnackDown is a multi round programming competition open to anyone with a knack for programming. Hosted by CodeChef, the competition was started in the year 2009.
The aim with SnackDown is to pit the finest computer programming brains from different parts of the globe against each other, under one roof in India. SnackDown also provides a unique opportunity for the top programmers of the world to get a flavour of India and at the same time let the Indian programmers meet top global programmers in flesh and bones. The competition is open to everyone including the middle and high school students as well as working professionals, virtually having no formal eligibility criteria.
SnackDown had a humble beginning with the inaugural edition of SnackDown witnessing participation from 639 teams of 3 members each taking part in the competition. Since then the contest has grown by leaps and bounds, with every subsequent edition triumphing its precursor. Today, SnackDown is being considered to be one of the most coveted onsite competitive programming titles across the globe.
If you can code, you can compete in SnackDown. If you are an aspiring programmer or know someone who is, we would like to see you compete. Join CodeChef and take the first plunge towards having fun with the best programmers out there.
