Overview of TCS CodeVita Season 10
First season of CodeVita was held in 2012 in India with an aim to spread awareness on various applications and uses of coding. This helped us spot bright programming talent. Encouraged by the good response we got from the first 2 domestic seasons, we decided to go global in 2014. In our very first global edition, we had 6 teams in the finals, thus strengthening our belief that now we could be truly global.
Season 9 saw over 3,50,000+ registrations from over 98 countries across 3500+ institutes and the students used 8 programming languages. We had participants from 9 regions battling it out in the Grand Finale!
This is the 10th season of the contest taking place globally and we cannot be more thrilled about it!
We hope the competitive programmer in you gears up for the most challenging and fun contest ever!
