Bitwise is an annual programming, application and web development fest organised by CodeClub, the CSE Department Society of IIT Kharagpur[1] over three days in the 2nd week of March. With huge support from the Department of CSE, the Bitwise team works intensely and enthusiastically to bring out the best workshops, guest lectures, and events centered around the most trending topics of Computer Science. The last iteration, Bitwise 2015, was held from March 13 to March 15, 2015. Prizes worth close to INR 200,000 were distributed.

SSD was the Title Sponsor[2] for Bitwise 2015, and Xerox,[3] its Associate Sponsor, with HackerRank[4] slated to be the coding Partner. The 2015 edition had prize money over INR 200,000 in the offing.

The fest has a huge participation from students in the campus from all departments and students from close to 50 colleges all over India arriving in the campus in 2014 to take part in the first iteration of the three day fest.

History[edit | edit source]

Bitwise was started in the year 2001 by the senior undergraduate students of Department of Computer Science and Engineering. The contest provides programmers across the globe a platform to compete, testing their ability to develop efficient algorithms to problems within a given time constraint. Over the last eleven years, the contest has grown in popularity and prize money, attracting the world's top programmers. In year 2014, Bitwise grew from being an annual online programming contest to a complete fest which had a lot of events in addition to the flagship coding marathon.

BitWise[5] is the main flagship event of the fest. Team size is limited to a maximum of three, and solutions have traditionally been expected to be provided in C (programming language) or C++. The solutions are evaluated not only on the basis of correctness, but also on their time and space complexities.

Bermuda Triangle[edit | edit source]

Bermuda Triangle[6][7] is an event for a team size of 3 members. The team members will be given different problem sets, but they have to switch at the end of every time interval.The event tests the team members based on their understanding and team work extensively .

Code Gamble[edit | edit source]

In Code Gamble,[8][9] competitors bet upon a concealed set of questions of varying difficulties and programming paradigms and try to gather the maximum points.This event tests the credence of the competitors in their abilities to tackle questions focusing on different flavors of competitive programming.

Enigma[edit | edit source]

Enigma[10][11] is an online quiz which was first introduced as a part of Bitwise 2007. It serves as a curtain raiser event which takes it participants on a journey discovering the facts, ideas and luminaries in various fields. It is traditionally conducted a few days prior to Bitwise. This year's event will begin on March 11, 2015.
