Coders from Asia Pacific Make a Clean Sweep at TCS CodeVita

Posted On: 2020-02-26 11:32:19

Tata Consultancy Services(TCS) (BSE:532540, NSE:TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, has announced the winners of the grand finale of season eight of TCS CodeVita, one of the largest programming contests in the world.

TCS has been organizing this flagship global event for the last eight years to celebrate the passion for coding among the youth, by promoting programming as a sport. College students from across the world are invited to pit their programming skills against each other to win cash prizes and earn a place among the global top coders.

The top three spots in 2020 were taken by students from Asia Pacific:

Winner - Sheng Yu Hang - National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan

1st Runner up - Ali Khosravi - RMIT University, Australia

2nd Runner up - Tan Jia Qing - Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Winners received prize money of US$ 10,000, US$ 7,000 and US$ 3,000 respectively. The top performers at TCS CodeVita will also get an opportunity to intern with TCS' Research and Innovation unit.

The eighth season set a new benchmark, witnessing participation by 230,000 students from 89 countries. Students could pick one of 8 different programming languages. Unlike the teams-based format of the past, it was an individual contest this time, raising the stakes by making the competition intensely personal and all the more exciting.

The top 25 programmers from the qualifier round were invited to India for the grand finale, where they battled it out over a 5-hour long nail-biting live programming hackathon. Milind Lakkad, Global Head-HR, TCS and K Ananth Krishnan, CTO, TCS, were present at the grand finale to encourage the enthusiastic, budding programmers.

"In an era where technology has revolutionized our world, innovation and creativity are critical parameters for success. It's exhilarating to see the agility and critical analysis brought to life at TCS CodeVita by this young talent," said K Ananth Krishnan, Chief Technology Officer, TCS. "Our platform aims to fuel the passion for programming in these brilliant young minds that goes beyond educational, social, geographical and cultural backgrounds."
