The Department of Computer Applications recently hosted an invigorating Data Structures Hackathon, known as "CodeCrush," specifically for MCA students. The event took place on March 29, 2023, and focused on utilizing data structures with the C-language to tackle real-world problems.
Beginning at 11 am, teams received problem statements and spent the initial 30 minutes discussing and analyzing the requirements. In the subsequent hour, participants devised strategies for application development, assigned team leaders, and distributed specific modules among team members.
The mandatory incorporation of linked lists and their various types added an exciting layer of complexity to the challenge. Teams then spent the next two hours implementing their innovative solutions. With a remarkable attendance of 165 students across 40 teams, the event demonstrated the immense potential of these young minds.
CodeCrush provided a unique opportunity for MCA students to collaborate and apply data structures to real-world situations. Throughout the hackathon, participants sharpened their technical skills and showcased exceptional leadership qualities, effective communication, and the ability to deliver results within tight deadlines.
By the end of the event, students were brimming with excitement and gratitude for the experience. They eagerly shared their positive feedback and expressed how the CodeCrush Hackathon had fueled their passion for data structures and their practical applications, setting the stage for future success in the field.
