Code Gladiators goes international, Malaysian among top coders

June 16, 2015: While boarding the plane to Delhi from Hong Kong, Malaysia’s Victor Hoh never thought he was soon going to be a star among techies.

A first-timer at any code contest and bereft of sleep, Victor, a senior consultant at Automated Workflow Private Ltd (AWPL), participated in Code Gladiators 2015 for his sheer passion for coding, and secured the second runners-up position.

“I never thought I will come this far and actually win this contest. I just wanted to put a good fight and test my coding abilities with my peers on such a platform,” Victor told after coming third in India’s largest coding contest.

Sharing his experience at Code Gladiators, Victor said the first two rounds were easier to solve but the final problem was a hard nut to crack. “It was actually worth it to come this far. Code Gladiators 2015 was indeed a great learning experience.”

According to Hoh, there is a need for more platforms like Code Gladiators for coders – internationally as well. As they not only help one assess one’s coding prowess but also helps coders to learn new things and benchmark oneself against peers, he said.

Advising on how to be a successful coder, he said it did not matter what coding language one chose. One just needed to have strong logical and reasoning skills to be a successful coder, he said. 

When asked if he would like to come back next year, Victor, with starry eyes, replied, “I would definitely like to come back again next year to win the coveted title,” and bid goodbye to fellow participants and winners to catch the flight back home.

Over 80,000 coders from across 9,000 top IT companies coded in Java, C, C++, C#,, Java Script, Python, Perl, Ruby and PHP in online rounds that culminated in the top 100 coders meeting in person to battle it out face-to-face.

The grueling competition saw the rise of top five coders, top five IT companies and a top Code Diva from among thousands of participants.  Victor Hoh from AWPL won a Rs. 1 Lakh Cash Prize, Trophy and Certificate Plaque at TechGig Code Gladiators 2015.
