technology and zen of life

“A heisenbug (named after the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle) is a computer bug that disappears or alters its characteristics when an attempt is made to study it.”

Improve your programming skills and win free t-shirts too!

Programming has always been my interest since I first learned to use computers in Class IV. But it was only after I joined my college, DA-IICT, for B.Tech, I started taking part in programming contests. I regret for starting so late, but as some say “It’s better late than never”.

I can undoubtedly say that taking part in programming contests have helped me achieve whatever little success I achieved. It not only helped me improving my programming skills but also helped in earning recognition in my college and outside. Not to forget the cool t-shirts, that I won, having big labels on them for showing off.

Well, for those, who want to have a go on these competitions and have no clue where to start, I will soon be posting info about various programming contests in my successive blogs. These includes-

  1. ACM
  2. Topcoder Open
  3. Topcoder Collegiate Programming Contest
  4. Google Code Jam
  5. Many others

I will also be posting info on how to practice and prepare for these contests and some of my experiences, till then check out the sites of these contests.
