SnackDown 2019

SnackDown is a global programming event that invites teams from all over the world to take part in India’s most prestigious multi-round programming competition. Hosted by CodeChef, SnackDown is open to anyone with a knack for programming and began in the year 2010.

The aim of SnackDown is to pit the finest programming brains from different parts of the globe against each other, under one roof in India. Everyone from middle and high school students as well as working professionals form teams that attempt to take home the coveted crown of SnackDown champion.

The SnackDown’s 5th iteration was the biggest ever with over 27000 teams (that’s over 40,000 individual participants!) who registered to participate in the qualifying online round. After multiple online rounds, 38 teams (25 global and 13 Indian) qualified for the onsite finals. The much anticipated onsite finale took place in Bengaluru for the first time.

Once again, some of the very best competitive programmers in the world will come together to compete under one roof. From school students and collegians to professionals and even a prodigy, SnackDown has every kind of programmer and we reward top performers in numerous categories.

Minaiev from Ukraine and Gennady Korotkevich from Belarus took home the crown and a cash prize of $10,000, yet again for the second time. The defending champions Aleksei and Oleg went on to win the first runner up title this year. Xiaoou Zhou and Jiayi Mao from China won the best women's team. Shih-Yu Wang from National Experimental High School, Taiwan and Yeoh Zi Song from Chung Ling High School, Malaysia, claimed the best school team award for the year.

This year, CodeChef is also used the SnackDown finale as an opportunity to host a corporate interaction with CodeChef lead Anup and Directi founder Bhavin Turakhia. This event offered a chance to learn and collaborate with CodeChef as well as network and create meaningful professional relationships.
