Experiences & Stories
"At first, I was surprised, by watching the enthusiasm of school students. Some of them were very active in asking questions. Most of them already knew many topics so it was not east to teach simple topics. I even learnt few different approaches from students and other volunteers. It was a great experience with those brilliant minds. Everyone was so active and eager to solve problems. It was a pleasure being with them, teaching and learning all together. "Pravash JhaStudent, Kalyani Government Engineering College, Kolkata
"It was an amazing experience. Never thought so many school students from kolkata are into competitive coding. And infact they are really good. They came up with pretty nice doubts. Also we got to learn many things from them. Overall a pretty amazing experience."Soham MukherjeeStudent, Jadavpur University,Kolkata
"It was a wonderful experience with the school students. They had zeal amd motivation to work rigorously. I also had opportunities to network with good people!"RighvedIntern, ShareChat, Bengaluru
"All the students are really very good. Even there level of thinking is remarkable. I wish them for their bright future ahead."Shivam PatidarProfessional, Hashedin Technology, Bengaluru
"It was an excellent initiative by Codechef to create a zeal for programming among the students. The guys were very passionate to learn, although not all of them were good at programming especially data structures and algorithms but, they were determined enough to learn the concepts and they really withstand with us throughout the workshop. Also, Codechef helped us as volunteers to explore new dimensions. The day is not far when the #GoForGold initiative by Codechef will be successful."
Pawan KushwahaStudent, Madhav Institute of Technology and Science, Gwalior
"Teaching to the students hailing from different colleges and districts and coming altogether under the CodeChef umbrella was fun. Right from having a student of 11 years age, to students in the age range of 20 - 25 Years, it was fun and challenging as the concepts taught was have to be made understood to all. It as fun, challenging and exciting, overall a pretty good experience, thanks CodeChef. "

"The CodeChef CP workshop during the summer of 2019 was my first official teaching experience and it was an experience I'd love to get again. I was able to look at the students from the trainer's point of view, which I think will help me to understand concepts better when I'm learning something. I feel, even though it was for a short duration, my communication skills had improved greatly and I also got the chance to understand a student's clarity when teaching something."
