Recap of First CodeChef Meetup

1 min read

Twinkies,
This past weekend we had our first CodeChef meetup! Against all odds, we were able to host it in our new office, and despite the weather, about 60 people showed up.

We really enjoyed meeting some of you in person. Bhavin started off with the inspiration behind CodeChef and our goals:


Next we asked CodeCheffers to go around and learn more about each other. Everyone received a piece of paper with statements like: Speaks 3 languages, Loves South Indian Movies, Is proficient in Erlang, Has solved 3 hard CodeChef problems. The goal was to get signatures from other people with those attributes:

After some quick snacks:

Go ahead Anshuman... one more Samosa never hurt anyone...
Go ahead Anshuman... one more Samosa never hurt anyone...

We tested people’s logic skills by having them solve a murder mystery:

No Bhavin the butler didn't do it!

Finally, Varun (aka syco) gave a rousing session on advanced data structures covering stacks, queues, heaps, binary index trees, and segment trees:

The videos from both Bhavin and Varun’s sessions, will be uploaded shortly. We look forward to future meetups in other cities as well. If anyone has any feedback in terms of how we could have made the meetup better, please let us know.

Cheers,
Chef
