The philosophy behind CodeFire
Well, we have seen a lot of people who know one or the other programming languages. We can see them all over India. You can find so many people taking C/C++ courses, yet another huge lot taking up Java courses. Do you think merely joining such courses or learning what is done in the B.Tech syllabus, is enough to solve real world problems ? You might have seen what a structure is in C/C++ but, you never came to see how it can help simplify complicated problems of reality. You might have learnt sorting algorithms, but how many time you have used it to do something other than solving the test paper ? What point I'm trying to bring out is that, something is lacking in the learning process. Its the 'Application' of what we have learnt. And CodeFire my friends, is the platform where you can come up, show off ur skills, compete with others, and learn more better ways to fulfill this gap.
What CodeFire aims to do is to create a competitive environment for all those who would love to be better programmers of the future. CodeFire is open to all, there is no restriction of branch, year, age etc.
In December 2007, we went for ACM-ICPC (International Collegiate Programming Contest) Asia round. Our teams got ranks 32 and 36 respectively. Overall 100 teams from all over India and Asia participated. We think we can do a lot better! And CodeFire is what is gonna help us create the very best teams out of our institution to be sent to such contests....
