What is Codechef?
CodeChef is a not-for-profit educational initiative started by Directi more than a decade ago. We started with a dream of seeing an Indian team winning a gold medal at the ACM ICPC World Finals. In its quest for the same, CodeChef has built a self-driven community of the world's best programmers. Today more than 1.3 million competitive programmers from 180+ countries learn from CodeChef. CodeChef has been hosting monthly programming contests regularly for 10 years now. Its platform has assessed 92 million+ code submissions to date, and over 30000 organizations are being impacted by CodeCheffers worldwide. It also organizes SnackDown - one of the world's largest global programming competition whose last edition drew participation from 140+ countries. Since 2017, CodeChef has started providing India's only industry-ready certification in Data Structures and Algorithms, and 1800+ programmers have been certified under the same.
