This Halloween marked our second CodeChef Meetup, and our city of choice was Delhi! Thanks to campus chapter representative Sailesh Mittal, the Delhi College of Engineering played host to our meetup.
We had have a great time!
Vineet Gupta, our GM Software Engineer, started off with an introduction to CodeChef.
He then moved on to an interesting talk on ‘Building Highly Scalable and Available Web Applications’.
Bingo is always fun and when it’s ‘People Bingo’ its just plain awesome! Fellow CodeCheffers went around getting to know more about their buddies. They needed to get signatures of people who completed at least one certain criteria like: Has been to over 3 countries, plays the guitar, has won a CodeChef contest and other fun stuff.
CodeChef Tshirts, sippers and stickers were given out at the end of it.
The Delhi Meetup was then concluded by Kamala Yazhini who gave an engrossing session on Dynamic Programming.
We’d love to know what you guys thought of the Delhi Meetup and what city you would like CodeChef to visit next! If anyone has feedback of any kind, do let us know.
We’re very happy to announce that CodeChef Meetup is coming to Delhi this month on 31st October, Saturday.
Just like the last meetup in Mumbai, we hope this one also helps CodeChef programmers come together and learn from the sessions we’ve organized as well as interact with each other and have a good time.
At the meetup we will cover the following two topics:
We’re still in the midst of finalizing a venue for the event but you can still sign up for attending the meetup here. We will let you know as soon as the venue is updated. The venue for the Delhi Meetup is the EDUSAT Hall at Delhi College of Engineering.
Make sure you RSVP!

Stay tuned for updates on the next meetup.
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:
We tested people’s logic skills by having them solve a murder mystery:
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.
