What is TCS CodeVita?

CodeVita is not just a game, it's a culture now! It connects people from varied backgrounds and ethnicities regardless of physical and cultural boundaries. It's also an exhilarating way to compete beyond borders and grow more skills as a programmer. At TCS, we firmly believe in this philosophy that programming can be both fun and challenging, which led to the inception of "CodeVita".

We hope the competitive programmer in you gears up for the most challenging and fun contest ever.

CodeVita: The TCS Global Coding Contest for Students
To try, to err, to practice, to evolve, to improve, to compete, to win, to rejoice. Aren't these traits so very human? In fact, these traits are characteristic of games or sports. It is this similarity that got us thinking on taking the wonderful skill of programming a notch higher. We infused the essence of these traits into 'programming-as-a-sport' and 'lo and behold' CodeVita was born.

First season of CodeVita was held in 2012 in India with an aim to spread awareness on various applications and uses of coding. This helped us spot bright programming talent. Encouraged by the good response we got from the first 2 domestic seasons, we decided to go global in 2014. In our very first global edition, we had 6 teams in the finals, thus strengthening our belief that now we could be truly global.

Sounds interesting already? Read on as more excitement unfolds.
