Code Hackathon

We are a team of students in GITAM that aim to promote coding as being fun, challenging & most of all #NotBoring

In collaboration with the Department of CSE, we organise frequent coding competitions called 'Code Hackathons' on a bi-monthly basis on Saturday afternoons. We may on occasion also take classes to discuss and try out various programming techniques and challenges to further enhance your skills.
