Remember the memories of your childhood when you accepted the challenge to solve some Jigsaw Puzzle, Complex Mathematics Problems, Tic-Tac-Toe, Sudoku or Rubik’s cube kinda brain teaser game. Maybe it was scary the first time but when you solved the problem it was exciting, fun, challenging and interesting for you.
Whether it’s a game or it’s real-life, challenges exist everywhere. These brain teaser games not only help you in becoming a good problem solver but also help in accepting the challenge and acquiring so many skills. Similarly, you step into programming solving a simple piece of code but you keep growing every day and learn to write code for difficult situations when some real-world complex problems hit in front of you. If you really enjoy solving complex problems and dealing with challenging things in your life then jumping into programming is the best career option for you. Now the question is where to start and how to take the step in competitive programming or coding challenges…?
GeeksforGeeks is organizing Geeks Coding Challenge 2019 for programmers who are interested in solving coding problems and love to compete with other programmers online. Take the advantage of this portal… learn, code, jump into the programming and compete with others to build the skills we have discussed before. You won’t only enjoy participation but also you will make your logical, analytical and problem-solving skills more powerful. It will also help you in your career to get into the product-based companies.
