Meet the SnackDown 2017 Finalists!

1 min read

Our journey with SnackDown 2017 has come a long way in the past 2 months. In this edition, we removed the restriction on team formation. We also ushered in the concept of SnackDown Hubs, which were physical locations set up in 11 countries around the world to bring in coders under one roof to compete in the qualifiers. It was exciting to meet our community members for the first time at such a hub in our own offices at Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore.

All efforts put together helped make this edition of SnackDown witness the largest and most diverse pool of participants CodeChef had as yet seen in a contest. The first online qualifying round this year saw registrations from 21039 teams. The participants drew from 119 countries and spread across 3431 institutions around the world.

We progressed from there to 12859 in the pre-eliminations. By the eliminations we were left with only 3403 teams competing. It was an exhilarating 5 hour long contest that brought us to the ultimate list of participants for the finals.

The finals of SnackDown are sure to be a congregation of the best of the best. Here is the list of those we are looking forward to join us:
