Code Venatic

Think you have a programming mind? Team Pragyan brings you Code Venatic, an event that lets you put your logical and innovative mind at work to hunt for an answer. Let loose your programming skills in this unconventional coding contest where you generate the source code from the executable file. The twist here is that the code written should be in minimum possible number of lines.

Date: 16th March 2019 (Day 2) 

Time: 9:00 AM
Venue: Orion F7

Prizes worth INR 20000

ROUND 1: Preliminary Round

  • It’s an offline MCQ test. Participants will be tested in C/ C++, Data Structures,Algorithms and aptitude.

  • This round is eliminative.

ROUND 2: Final Round

  • Participants will be provided with an executable file for which they have to find the source code. The code should be in minimum number of lines.

  • Each team can have a maximum of two members.

  • In Round 2, only C and C++ languages are allowed.

  • Third party libraries are not allowed.

  • Disassembler tools will not be provided for the final round. Participants will have to rely on their analytic skills to reverse-engineer the source code of the given executable file.

  • In case of discrepancies, the decision of the organisers is final and binding.


Judging criteria:

Round 1:

  • Number of correct answers.

Round 2:

  • Number of test cases cleared.

  • Number of lines used to write the code.

  • In case of ties, time taken will be considered.


Problem statement will be given when the event starts.


Q) What parameters will be considered in case of a tie?

A) If there is a tie, number of lines in the code written will be considered. If the tie still continues, time complexity will be checked .


Q) Are participants allowed to use reference materials?

A) No. You can’t use the internet or any other reference materials like books.
