Techtroniks 2010

TechtroniKs 2010. Our Annual Techno-Management festival concluded on 10th April with Jagriti, the Cultural event signing off things. Cactus pricked our imaginations and left everyone wanting for more...

There were very less participants from other colleges on-site. Around 150.

However on-line we had around 300 participants in Treasure Hunt. Treasure Hunt was the National Level Event that was won by IEM.

Tech Fests Win and Loss

National Institute of Technology aka R.E. College of Durgapur was famous for being the college second only to IIT Kharagpur in West Bengal in Engineering Education. This was not what I had expected of them.

The prelims questions were so bad that we (me and Sarthak) could challenge them that they knew nothing about them They were mostly wrong. All of them used the depreciated C90 standard and the TurboC standard (sic!). In the 2 events of programming : Khula Maidan and Code Marauders, I qualified in only Code Marauders. In Khula Maidan, I did not qualify. So, I wasn't good enough? Mine and Sarthak's teams did not qualify, we challenged them that the scripts were checked wrongly and questions posed erroneous. After much persuasion, they found Sarthak's paper and qualified them. And they didn't find our paper. We were notified we did not make the cut-off make necessary.
