Last week at our Learn Competitive Programming With CodeChef program on Unacademy was certainly productive. We got a whole lot of learning done through all the free classes, and we also had a weekend learning event that was the perfect way to end the week. If you happened to be busy this past week, we’re here with another round-up blog to bring you up to speed!
If this is your first time here, let us give you some background information. You’ve arrived at CodeChef’s weekly Round-Up blog where we discuss all the free classes, tests, and weekend events held on Unacademy. If you aren’t sure what a free class is and how to access it, we’ve added a description for you at the end of this blog. For the time being, here are our favorite classes from last week!

What The Weekend Entailed!
Elevate – The Programming Aptitude Test – Elevate, the hour-long MCQ test, was one of the highlights of every coder’s weekend! Not only was the test a great opportunity to measure your own growth, but the winner also got a free 3-month subscription to the Learn Competitive Programming With CodeChef program. Additionally, ranks 2-100 were also given scholarships based on their performance. If you missed out on participating in the test this time, you can still give it as practice for the next time. Best of luck!
Emerge 2.0 – This event was the best DSA learning series you could have dreamed up. It was a two-day long workshop held on the 19th & 29th of June, and it was a great learning space for all aspiring coders. The workshop was especially perfect for intermediate level programmers looking to achieve a 7-star rating soon. We covered topics like Segment Trees, Contest Taking Strategies, Last Minute Interview Prep, Advanced Combinatorics and much more! Overall, it was a pretty eventful experience.
