The Department of Computer Science & Engineering in collaboration with the Class of 2007 and CodeISM successfully conducted the second iteration of the annual month long competitive coding competition - Code Marathon. Like the previous year, the event comprised three Divisions - one for the final & third years, one for the second years and one for the first years with a participation of 92, 120, and 62 students in the respective divisions. A big shout out to the problem setters and organizers for maintaining the high standards set by first edition of Code Marathon. The difficulty of the problems was just the ideal amount - not too easy that everybody solves it and not too hard so that no one solves it! They took the painstaking effort of checking each and every submission manually and ensuring the maintenance of the authenticity of the event. They did a wonderful job. The alumni cannot be thanked enough for their active support and cooperation. The future looks bright and the only way to go from here is in the forward direction.
