For the IT community, coding competitions are more revered than any other festivals or celebrations. This is primarily more appropriate, as every coding contest brings along thousands of ambitious techies who give shape to unique and novel business solutions while displaying their combined coding prowess.
This is exactly the scene at India’s biggest hackathon, TechGig Code Gladiators 2018. TechGig Code Gladiators 2017 was honored with a coveted mention in Guinness World Record for participation numbers, beating China’s Baidu. This year too, organisers are vying for bigger laurels as participants have started submitting their codes. The Coding Contest alone has already attracted more than 72,000 registrations till date.
Some of the new and exciting themes in this year’s Code Gladiators that have been well-received by participants include Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Amazon Alexa, and Cloud Computing. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning themes have witnessed maximum submissions so far. Other popular themes include Machine Learning, Internet of Things (IoT), E-Commerce and Big Data at the TechGig Code Gladiators 2018.
Ramathreya Krishnamurthi, Business Head, TimesJobs and TechGig is confident that new themes will broaden the scope of innovation for participants. “We have introduced the currently trending technologies as this year’s themes. These themes will open new realms of innovation and experimentation to the participants. I am sure that these valuable submissions shall become the highlight of TechGig Code Gladiators 2018 season,” he says.
The enthusiasm of the participants has grown multiple-fold, as TechGig Code Gladiators 2018 has unveiled what’s in store for the winners. The coveted winners will take home worthy cash prizes of Rs 75 Lakhs in total. While the champion wins Rs 2.5 Lacs, over 8 runners-up shall be rewarded with an average of Rs. 1.00 Lac and more. The Coding Arena also recognises top 5000 winners with multiple prizes and gift vouchers. With added surprises, gifts, recognition and multiple opportunities to showcase the talent, Code Gladiators 2018 is beholding a stupendous excitement.
