Do you know about TCS Codevita?

CodeVita : The TCS Global Coding Contest for Students

To try, to err, to practice, to evolve, to improve, to compete, to win, to rejoice. Aren’t these traits so very human? In fact, these traits are characteristic of games or sports. It is this similarity that got us thinking on taking the wonderful skill of programming a notch higher. We infused the essence of these traits into programming by making it a sport and ‘lo and behold’ CodeVita was born.

First season of CodeVita was held in 2012 in India with an aim to spread the awareness on the various applications and use of coding. This helped us spot bright programming talent. Encouraged by the good response we got from 2 domestic seasons, we decided to go global in 2014. In our very first global edition, we had 6 teams in the finals, thus strengthening our belief that now we can be truly global.

The last edition saw 2,00,000+ registrations from over 60+ countries across 3000+ institutes and the students used 10 programming languages. We had participants from 10 countries battling it out in the Grand finale!

Sounds interesting already? Read on as more excitement unfolds.

What’s in it for students?

  • Global Ranking to Top Coders
  • Top 3 Coders to win total prize money of US$20,000/-
  • A chance to explore exciting career with one of the world’s most powerful brand*
  • A chance to compete with some of The Best Coders in the world
  • A Platform to showcase your programming skills
  • Students making it to the Finals get an opportunity to travel to India for the Grand Finale

With each edition, the contest has evolved and gotten better. So what is new this season? This time we have made it an individual contest which is a lot simpler and more exciting. Students will have option of choosing from 9 different programming languages.
