Skill Development & Finishing School (SDFS) in collaboration with CODING NINJAS had organized an expert session on 29th December 2022 on “Importance of Competitive Coding"

All Students of B. Tech across all the branches and MCA first year were invited to attend the same. A total of 190 Students were present at the event across all the branches.
The Event started with a welcome note by Ms. Chelsy , a student of MCA first year, and giving oxy plants to Mr. Archit Mittal and Mr. Daksh, Growth Manager of Coding Ninja by Head SD&FS and Addl Head CCIP.
Mr. Archit focused on the importance of Competitive Coding in current scenarios. He discussed the best approach to being a competitive programmer with the following highlights

  1. Clearly understand the concepts
    To master your programming skills, you must first clearly understand the programming concepts. It is critical that you have a thorough understanding of programming concepts, whether through standard books or various online platforms.
  2. Begin with easier problems
    The key to competitive programming success is to begin with simple programming problems. Also, create a hierarchy or flow chart of how you intend to solve the problem. Eventually, progress to larger and more difficult problems. This will allow you to hone your skills without losing confidence.
  3. Concentrate on day-to-day issues
    Once your basic concepts are clear and your code works flawlessly in the resolution of minor problems, try to create codes that solve problems in your daily life. You can test your abilities on small real-world projects such as a ticket reservation system, a telephone directory listing, or a library management system, among others.
  4. Improve your code
    When you're used to writing code to solve real-world problems, it's time to focus on shortening your code. Remove unnecessary lines, eliminate repetitive code, and learn code optimization. This is the most important phase and the transition from basic to competitive programming.
  5. Take part
    Once you've learned how to create an optimal solution to a real-world problem, you're ready to compete in coding competitions such as hackathons or code sprints. You must write the best optimal solution in the shortest amount of time possible. Such platforms provide a healthy competitive environment in which you can learn at a faster rate and assess your programming skills.
  6. Stay Informed
    The final but not least step in mastering your competitive coding skills is to keep yourself up to date on new technologies and coding amendments. It will help you produce and serve more effectively.

At the end of the session, there was a Q&A round in which students asked approximately 15 different questions, which Mr. Archit handled and satisfied the students.
The Coding Ninja Team and its business development manager Mr. Daksh, were thanked in the final CCIP-SD&FS meeting for coordinating the event from their end. In the future, CCIP-SD&FS will develop more programs of this nature.


Skill Development & Finishing School (SDFS) in collaboration with CODING NINJAS had organized an expert session on 26th December 2022 on “Fundamental & Advance Concept of Data Structure and Algorithms"

All Students of B. Tech third year/second year and MCA first year were invited to attend the same. A total of 300 Students were present at the event across all the branches.
Ms. Pragi focused on the importance of Data Structure and Algorithms (DSA) in current scenarios. She discussed the progression of DSA learning from basic to advanced data structures. She advised students to complete at least 20 questions from each basic data structure before moving on to practice on advanced data structures.
At the end of the session, there was a Q/A round in which students asked approximately 25 different questions, which Ms. Pragi handled and satisfied the students.
SD&FS conducted online feedback to determine the impact of the program, as is best practice for any event. A total of 89 students took part, with over 75 rating the session from 8 to 10.

KIET CCIP-SD&FS has organized “KICCS-D-HACK 22.4- for Batch 2024”, one-day Codathon on 24th Sep 2022

Real Learning comes when the competitive spirit has ceased. KIET CCIP-SD&FS has organized “KICCS-D-HACK 22.4- for Batch 2024”, one-day Codathon on 24th Sep 2022. This was a celebration of the coding abilities of the students and the best use of time to render their skills.
CCIP-SD&FS opened registration for batch 2024 on 5th Sep 2022 using google Form. More than 400+ students have registered for this Codathon, which tells us about the popularity of KICCS-D-HACK among the students.
After organizing 4 such events in the past KICCS-D-HACK 21.0,21.1,21.2 and 21.3, this is the fifth time that CCIP-SD&FS has conducted its Competitive module KICCS-D-HACK 22.4. We have offered a big amount of cash prize of Rs 34000/- as per our previous practice. This Codathon we have conducted on the CodeChef platform.

Selection of winners-

  • Selection of winners has been decided as per their fastest correct submission of code on the CodeChef platform.
  • List of Institutional winners of KICCS-D-HACK 22.4

The Valedictory function to honour the winners was held in the presence of the Director Sir, Deans and Hods, and the Head-SD&FS. Certificates and cash prizes were awarded to all winners (thru e-transfer). Institutional winners provided feedback and praised the CCIP team's efforts. We are aware that participation numbers are low, but we will not give up on our goal of instilling a coding culture in KIET students. In the same vein, we intend to hold KICCS-D-HACK 23.5 in February 2023.


SDFS in collaboration with CODING NINJAS had organized an orientation session on “Roadmap to Crack Product Based Companies" on 08-April-2022
