Early in 2011, we wrote a post congratulating one of our guest blogger Gautam Gupta on being ranked 5th in the Google Code-in 2010 competition. As a prize he got $500, a cool t-shirt and most importantly a chance visit Google’s Mountain view Headquarters.
Guess what? Gautam has done it again and featured as a winner again for Google Code-in 2011. This time too he has won the opportunity to travel to Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California, where he will get to meet Google engineers.
What is Google Code-in?
Google Code-in (GCI) is a project that encourages pre-university students ( age 13-17) to take part in coding on open-source projects. This year 542 students took part and completed 3054 tasks. The top 10 winners (which includes Gautam) completed 447 tasks.
Once again a big Congratulations from everyone at Devils’ Workshop to Gautam Gupta.
