About Codathon

Codathon is an Inter-NIT coding contest, the first of its kind and the brainchild of ISTE Students' Chapter MANIT. Codathon kickstarts ISTE SC MANIT's Annual Students' Conclave 'Chimera'.

Codathon will be a week-long contest with seven questions unraveled over seven days with increasing difficulty.

Although the prizes are reserved for students of NITs, the contest is open to all those who have a knack for programming and consider solving algorithmic questions a healthy mental exercise. Moreover, if you can topple all competition from NITs you get much more than money, recognition.
