The event was organized on two labs of Computer Center 3 of IIIT-A. Participants had to code for 17 hours followed by a presentation at Admin Audi of the Institute.


The event Rules and Regulations followed by team registration was done in front of CC3 at 9:00 pm on 10 th of September. Teams had to register online on a google form previously. The teams were alloted one to two first years as extra help for their task in hand.


The Participants went to there alloted labs and started coding very soon. Our organizers helped teams in fixing their minor bugs as they can. Teams were given free goodies on the spot by the Organisers to encourage them on thier effort. Refreshments such as coffe,colddrinks and snacks were provided for the Participants during the event.


After vigorous coding efforts the Participants then proceeded to Admin Audi. All the teams were judged by Dr. Rahul Kala and winners were decided soon after it was over. Top projects can be viewed here.
