IT firm Infosys has partnered with online technology community TechGig Code Gladiators to help the firm identify the next generation of ace coders for its business expansion plans.
“The critical skills of our future are about problem-finding, about curiosity and learning in everything that we do, and in looking beyond what is known to us. As we look to build this type of culture inside Infosys, a culture of innovators and problem-finders, TechGig Code Gladiators is absolutely essential to help us discover not only the best and brightest coders, but the entrepreneurs who have a passion for leveraging technology to amplify the work we do,“ Infosys CEO Vishal Sikka said.
The coding event is one of the largest coding contests in the world and has entered the Limca Book of Records as India’s Largest Coding Contest in 2015 and 2016. With over 2,08,094 registrations so far and a bounty worth over Rs 3 crores to be won, the event promises to attract top coding talent in the country.
“I’m a coder, and this is a distinct pleasure, because this event is not about the best singer, or the best artist, but the best coder,“ said, Gautam Sinha, CEO, TIL.
The event offers coding opportunities in over 50 programming languages where coders can put their skills to test. This year’s edition of the competition has expanded its horizon to e-commerce, Machine Learning, Data Science, Bots, DevOps, IoT, Big Data, IBM Watson, Android and Software Framework domains.
