CodeChef Facebook ‘Comment to Win’ Contest

1 min read

Hey Guys,

From the 14th to the 21st of December ’09 we had the Facebook CodeChef ‘Comment to Win’ contest. Each day we uploaded a photograph of a different CodeChef merchandise that we would give away. Participants were then asked to comment on the photograph. Every 24 hours we had a lucky draw and 5 people from among all that had commented were selected to receive the merchandise of the day. Hemant Verma was the luck winner of an iPod Touch, our merchandise for the final day!

We had a lot of fun with this contest and we hope you like the photographs we put up. The comments received were just awesome and the enthusiasm you guys showed is really appreciated!

I’m sure you’re all wondering who the man in all the photographs is. That’s Pranab Kelkar, just another friendly DirectIan who agreed to be our model for the contest. Thanks a lot buddy!

While a lot of the comments deserve a mention, here is our favourite comment for each photograph.

A famous saying goes like,that “Books are the man’s best friends”. Certainly that’s very true and evident from the pic 🙂 The power in the written word (speciallty algorithms!) is so immense that it makes the chef sleepy most of the time. Mark Twain has rightly said : Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.

Our winner of the iPod Touch for Day 5 of the contest :
Hemant Verma
