CodeKaze: The Ultimate Coding Exam



Competitive coding and hackathons have been the main source of talent recognition amongst organisations to hire coders. You will be asked questions that will have a limited constraint usage and you have to code the solution to the problem. A coding competition such as CodeKaze would be a great learning experience for you as a coder even if you are not so familiar with code. Competitive coding exams mainly require mathematical, logical, and coding skills. This is different from a hackathon where teams sit together to build the solution to a complex problem and this solution is usually in the form of hard applications that are developed by participants. In competitive coding exams, participants only have to solve problems based on coding. A hackathon lasts for a minimum of 24-48 hours while competitive coding events only last for a day.

What is CodeKaze?

Hosted by one of the largest tech communities in India, CodeKaze is the most awaited coding competition in India. It is offering a chance to bag exciting prizes up to ₹10 lakh in worth and internship interview opportunities from a wide range of companies like ThoughtWorks, India Mart, Daily Hunt, and HealthKart.
