The finale of Code Gladiators 2020 will conclude with a virtual grand finale and felicitation ceremony to boost participation when travelling is prohibited, and social distancing is the new norm.
Another highlight of TechGig Code Gladiators 2020 edition would be the Virtual Career Fair that will help companies interact with coders and conduct live interviews in a COVID-19 fear-free environment via LiveCode.
