  • Evaluation criteria for the Coding Challenge will be as follows:

    • Coding Accuracy:
      1. Does the solution give the expected result?
      2. Does your solution handle all possible valid inputs?
      3. How does your solution handle invalid inputs or exceptions?.
    • Coding Efficiency:
      1. How many lines of code does your solution consist of?
    • Coding Productivity:
      1. Was the solution arrived at by trial-and-error?
      2. DevSquare records each compilation request sent to the server. The more times the code is compiled the less the score on this parameter.

    Each criterion is assigned a weight and the final score is a weighted average of the three criteria.

    An important point to note, esp. newcomers of the event, "Don't post your coding challenge questions in the forums before the end of quiz ..." By end of quiz , i mean until sunday midnight...
