You all must be well aware about the Goodies site and our own, Laddus, that we launched when CodeChef turned seven. The objective behind our initiative towards this sweet project was to motivate our users to perform better and that too consistently so that they earn and accumulate more laddus. You can redeem these Laddus for the goodies that we have listed on our site.
Motivation persists only when a person finds her goal achievable. We have been continuously analysing our user activity on the Goodies site of their behaviour and what goodies they redeemed with their Laddus. Apart from our most popular goodies, the funky bottle, the cool bag, the classic CodeChef t-shirt and the elegant pen, we found very few users redeeming the Hard Disk Drive which made us take the decision of reducing its price.
Here is the good news for the readers who read this post till this point. The new price of Hard Disk Drive is 3500 Laddus. Just grab your laptop and start coding, collect more Laddus and get the HDD. We just made it easier for you, 30% easier. We know we are being too generous. You can thank us by performing better in the contests and we will be happier to see more users redeem the hard disk drive.
So what are you all waiting for? The Long Challenge contest is coming. Sharpen your skills, prepare your templates and get ready for the battle. See you on the leaderboard.
