We are delighted to inform you that CodeFest, the annual International online coding festival of Computer Engineering Society, IT-BHU, has been unveiled.

CodeFest is a unique fest wherein concepts of mathematics, logic, artificial intelligence, algorithms, language syntax, etc. are required to be deployed in programming; these concepts manifest themselves in solving problems effectively and efficiently!

CodeFest was started last year. CodeFest'10 was a phenomenal success with participation from all over the globe.

CodeFest'11 is geared up with some new and pepped up events, while maintaining the integrity of its standards.

Here is a brief description of the constituent online events:

* Mathmania: A mathematical puzzle contest that puts mathematical and computational skills to test.
* Manthan: An algorithm intensive programming contest that would require coders to tailor existing standard algorithms to solve real life computation problems.
* Virtual Combat: An educational game wherein teams of programmed robotic tanks will fight the battles for glory. Codes Do Fight! Watch this out.
* Perplexed: A programming contest, aimed to test the knowledge of C, wherein codes will be rewarded against syntactic constraints.
* Ratespiel: A technical quiz covering different areas of Computer Science.

This year CodeFest, in association with Technex'11, brings onsite events:

* Eniac: An open software exhibition where you get an opportunity to demonstrate your software from any domain.
* Code Warrior: A multiple round contest to award the title of 'ultimate computer geek'.
