Debugging is twiice as hard as writing the code in the first place. Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not smart enough to debug it '.
— Brian W. Kernighan and P. J. Plauger
Nowadays, 'Code debugging' is emerging as one of the most critical thinking competition. So here NITW is giving you all a opportunity to use your intellect and become the best among all.
Motive of organizing this event is to trigger the coder inside you and to create a competitive coding environment ...
The event will be consisting of 2 rounds:-
ROUND 1:- This round is basically a pen-paper based and will be having 5 questions .Each question is having some a definite output with some errors in the code,,.The participants have to rectify the code by removing all the errors and also by adding their own logic in order to get the exact output..
ROUND 2:- This round will be pen-paper based and all participants have to bring their laptops also so that they can execute the code on their laptops. This round will be having 3 questions and 1 bonus question of miscellaneous type..
You can expect the level of codes somehow tough in this round.
