Code Gladiators 2019 was a unique edition in more ways than one. Not only did we raise the stakes by announcing a total prize money of Rs 1 Crore, but we also included a total of 10 exciting technology themes this year for our contestants to compete in, and these included:
Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Chatbots, Robotic Process Automation, Fintech, Software Testing, Location Services, Amazon Alexa Skills, Internet of Things, and New Commerce.
Our judges had a tough task at hand, to scrutinise the thousands of code submissions in each of these rounds and advance the best tech talent into the Semi Final and eventually the 3-day long Grand Finale. After all, we were dealing with current students and pass-outs of India’s premier technology institutes like the IITs and BITS Pilani, tech professionals working in some of the leading companies in the country like TCS, Infosys and Wipro, tech startup founders and experienced professionals.
Come Grand Finale and our contestants made compelling presentations to demonstrate their efforts to the jury.
In the end, after 87 days of the competition, there had to be one Champion and with drumrolls we are happy to announce that the Champion of Code Gladiators 2019 is Sameer Gulati.
Missing by a whisker, the first Runner-up was Madhav Sainanee. The third and fourth runners-up were Jatin Yadav and Vineet Paliwal respectively. Vineet was also the Champion of Code Gladiators 2018.
Not just that, we also had Vaishnavi crowned as the Best Female Coder.
They were all felicitated in a gala award ceremony in the presence of representatives of some of the leading companies in the country.
