Mayank Singhal, the winner of the first prize of Rs. 50,000 said, “The competition was intense yet healthy with an excellent variety of questions. My advice to future participants is to keep calm under pressure and exhibit proficiency over DP and Trees.”
Ankush Singla, a mentor and co-founder at Coding Ninjas said, “I congratulate the winners and all participants for being a part of CodeKaze and performing with flying colors. Competitive coding and hackathons have been the main source of talent recognition amongst organizations to hire coders.
