- Conducted 2022 VPT programming qualifier contest on Dec 31st. We were unsure of students participation, if we conduct the contest on New Year’s eve. But we decided to go ahead, as who ever shows up on New Year’s eve will be motivated enough. Twenty teams signed up and ten teams submitted their code. We will announce the results in a week.
- We started some open source projects with students who won the 2021 VPT contest. We will continue them in 2022 as well. Happy to note that one of the team which won the 2021 VPT contest, went ahead and won the first prize (₹ 1,00,000) in Smart India Hackathon.
- Translated two articles (Story of Infosys (Original: Source Code), “How to Start a Startup” – Paul Graham) into Tamil and they were published in “Kizhakku Today” website.
2022 is a satisfying year. Wishing everyone a Happy New Year.
