This was my first competitive programming contest to participate. It was held in our college by i-CES, our computer club. We were two teammates trying to hand 5k although we couldn't. We at least managed to grab second position which is great. We actually owe some to our other two friends providing python code, that passed one test case which didn't, in our C++ code, that made the 0.something point difference for us to remain at second position. Turned out, that problem was wrongly configured and provided one input less that stated one. Anyways, it was a great experience.
This event was a part of Vector, an annual technical festival organized in our college. This event was based on dynamic as well as static obstacles that out robot had to tackle and overcome. So, this was mostly a designing challenge which of course had to be given proper shape. There were moving platforms, load to carry, mountains to climb and descend, a bridge to cross and so on. We, Me+two Electronics depart friends, a team of three, in our first semester, designed a cheap DIY miniature bot (we named it UltraMicroSpectrum, also our team name) that was supposed to do its job. But, oh well, we were too much reliant on promises and also amateur, so was left behind on points. Still, it was fun.
I participated in this program conducted by Microsoft, two years ago, which I left till some months ago(It's May 2022 today) because I felt like I joined too early and didn't have anything to contribute to the community. Then I came back, attended some events, conducted workshops myself and am currently learning Azure and other cloud stuffs, a nice way to say I'm robbing Microsoft of it's credits. This portfolio is itself deployed in Azure.
A hackathon like event organized by LeapFrog Technology at Dec 17, 2022. We had to revamp a product, turned out to be News Portal, to make it better. We proposed a solution, designed a prototype then presented at Leapfrog's office at Kathmandu. We actually focused to solve mainly 2 problems: User retention and Increasing audience pool. Our presentation was quite good for some first timers(including me) and we were able to receive honorable mention (2nd position), not quite the first spot but that's fine we'll go stronger another time. Had a lot of fun during the trip as well. It was awesome.
Got a project you'd like me to work on?
Or how about a friendly chat?
Or maybe let's go cycling together.
