Coding Challenge

Author: Mr. Srinidhi Kulkarni

The Class of 4th semester is divided into groups namely







Each group consists of both boys and girls. Coding Challenge was given to all the groups .10 days time was given for preparation.

An event named ‘Coding challenge’ was organised, where in the group presented their practical work. The students have learnt all the phases of software development such as modelling the problem, design, coding, testing etc.

Students participated with lot of enthusiasm.

Initially when we started with the group ‘Ganga’ they demonstrated coin exchange problem with small presentation. Most of the teams demonstrated this within 25 min of stipulated time. Some teams gave the presentation of the problem with some extension of time. Every student of a team participated in the presentation. Code was written by following convention of C programming in a systematic way.




Coin Exchange Problem using greedy technique


Zodiac Sign with brute force approach


Knapsack Problem using brute force approach


Credit card problem using brute force approach

We received excellent feedback from the students about the conduction of the event and opportunity provided to showcase their skills.

IoT Workshop @ Bagmane tech park

Author : Manjari M N, 6th sem ISE                                                                      Date: 9 & 10-04-2016

We had a two day workshop on internet of things (IoT) . We were almost an hour late to the class on the first day, since we ended up in Phase 2 of Bagmane tech park; But we were supposed to go to Phase 1. We finally made it to the texas instruments campus. It was an amusing view through the way to the class. Since we were late, we missed most of the theoretical part of the workshop. However that was not much of a loss, because Arvind Sir (trainer) guided us through the experiments we performed.

We started off with a simple experiment to blink an LED, after which we got a break. We resumed with other experiments right after the much needed break.


We used Launchpad (by Texas instruments) for all the experiments and the programming language we used was “Wiring”, which is a mixture of C and C++. Energia is the editor we used for coding.

There were approximately 18 members in the class of which a few were students, a few were employees. We all were divided into teams of two members, of which Mayuri and I were a team. Every team in the class were provided with an experiment kit, using which we all did the experiments.

Arvind sir mentioned the application of each of the experiment we did. Everyone of us got an idea of exactly why we were doing that particular experiment. Arvind sir was very elaborate with whatever he explained. He guided everyone of us throughout the workshop and cleared each of our doubts.

We had a lunch break after a few experiments. Lunch was available in the canteen. We all had good food for lunch. We resumed right after lunch and continued with similar experiments till 6 in the evening.


The next morning we reached at the right time. We performed many more experiments, which were quite interesting. We had a faculty from T John college as a volunteer, who helped us on this day.

By the end of the day, each group was given a different kit to perform vivid experiments and each of the teams were asked to give a demo. Our group – Pallavi, Yashaswini, Mayuri and I got a Node4j board, which was more of a mini-project, but, we were not successful since we lacked a software. We carefully observed the demos which was presented by each of the other teams, of which one team was of my classmates – Srivatsa, Shritha and Vinay Raaj. All the other groups gave the demonstration of the experiments they were asked to.

At the end of second day, we got a picture with arvind sir and left the campus

A Day @ Bang The Table

Author: Vinay Kiran, 6th Sem, CSE                                                                           Date: 26-03-2016

On Saturday 26th March 2016, I attended an one day workshop on ‘PYTHON’. It was conducted by IEDF and the venue was ‘BANG THE TABLE’ located in INDIRANAGAR, 12th main.

My friends (Arjun Hangud, Perumal, Vinay Bhat, Tilak and Vinay Raj) and me initially struggled to locate the venue. We searched the same road again and again, ultimately Vinay Bhat was able to locate it.


The company was located at 3rd floor, so we took elevator to go to that floor. All of was were acting like kiddos in that elevator, pressing all the buttons, so that the elevator stops at each floor.

We expected it would be like a typical classroom environment. But it was completely a different scenario. We were provided with bean bags and free WiFi . So it was more of a comfortable corner.


The session began at 9:45 AM. The speaker was Arvind Padmanabhan.He is the founder of IEDF(Indian Engineering Design Forum). He had a very profound knowledge of PYTHON. Just like all other workshop, he also started with a brief introduction about PYTHON.

My friends and me were only students who attended the workshop. All the other participants were professional working in various companies and organizations.

The first session was installation of PYTHON on two major platforms: UBUNTU and WINDOWS.

The second session was an interactive hands on session which helped us to understand the basics of PYTHON. We had a tea break. They even served biscuits, chocolates and snacks which was much needed for distraction and also networking with other participants.

Now, we were left with two challenging sessions and one lunch break. These challenging sessions were ‘Programming Challenge 1’ and ‘Programming Challenge 2’.


The ‘Programming Challenge 1’ was based on operator precedence, strings, math related library functions, string related functions etc. We had to post the answers on the website and Arvind sir used to test and review the answers. So it was a good interactive session.

After Lunch the ‘Programming Challenge 2’ was based on lists, dictionaries, tuples, sets, list comprehension , dictionary comprehension etc. In both the challenge most of the correct answers was posted by us . Arvind sir gave us an excellent guidance as we started climbing the challenge . For almost , all the challenges , he used to provide us with single line code , which was pretty amusing . At the end he showed us some PYTHON based projects . Some of the projects were RIVER CROSSING RESCUE SCOOTER , OIL CAN CRUSHER and many more .

Finally we had a group photo and was ready to leave. We enjoyed the workshop a lot and had an amazing Saturday . But we had to wait half an hour in the parking lot , since our friend Perumal as usual encountered Arvind Sir with his questions .


Coding Contest @ Dept of CSE During ETET-2016

Author: Adithya B, Asst. Professor, Dept of CSE                                                  Date: 12/03/2016


Technically challenging problems were given to more than 10 teams with in JIT and one team from Don Bosco College of Engineering. Students from various branches, across semesters participated actively in this event.re_20160312_104944

Initially when we started to contemplate on what should the structure of this event should be, we though we should have three rounds. The first round being C programming, second a C++ development followed by a web application development. But, when we saw the students who were willing to participate from various other departments and also from lower semesters, we decided to have same three rounds, but this time only C programming problems were giving to the participants.re_20160312_101119

The first problem was a simple problem which could be solved within 25 min. Most of the teams solved this within 25 min of stipulated time. Some teams did solve the problem with some extension of time.

By the time the second round started, the crowd of students outside in the quadrangle started getting together for a Treasure Hunt event. Some of the participants naturally distracted wanted to participant in both of these parallel events. The second problem was again a C programming problem with a slight increase in complexity than the previous. 4 teams were able to crack it fully, couple of teams dropped out of the contest to participant in treasure hunt.

Two teams finally were able to complete the 3rd round and one team with a partial output. Later that day, they were awarded prizes during the valedictory function.

Computer Society of India – CSI Inauguration @ Jyothy Institute of Technology

Author: Meghana Srinath, Student, 6th Sem. CSE                                     Date: 5th Mar 2016

On the 5th of March 2016, it was a normal day for all the JITians except for the members of CSI. An inaugural collaborative event was organized by Department of Computer Science and Information Science, where Prof.Nagaraj, HOD along with students and faculty members congregated to glorify the event.

On that day, two different events were organized by the faculty for the students viz., “Quiz” and “Pick & Speak”. Quiz was meant for 4th semester students and Pick & Speak was meant for 6th semester students.
Asst Prof. Adithya of CSE and Asst Prof. Vadiraj of ISE were the Quiz masters. 29 teams (2 per team) registered for preliminary online round. 4 top teams were selected for the next few oral rounds as detailed below.
1. General round – ಹಾಗೆ ಸುಮ್ನೆ
2. Rapid technology – ತ್ವರಿತ ತಂತ್ರಜ್ಞಾನ
3. Tale behind pictures – ಚಿತ್ರದ ಹಿಂದಿನ ಕಥೆ

Each round was increasingly complex and interesting. The questions that the participants couldn’t answer was passed to the audience; the correct answer was rewarded with goodies.
Concomitantly, Pick and speak was going on for 6th semester at a different venue. The topics written on small chits of paper were divided into two categories: “Fun” and “Technical”.  Few of many topics in Fun category were:
First day at college
Exams or no exams
Huccha Venkat
First rank raju
Bunty or Bubbly

Some under Technical category were:
3g or 4g
Google Chrome
Google Glass
Nano technology

The rule of the game was to randomly pick a chit from either of the lots and speak for at least 2 min on the topic. Asst Prof. Chhaya and Asst Prof. Kumar throughly enjoyed while they judged the crowd of their oratory skills. We enjoyed the whole of 1 hour event and some fun time listening to wonderful thoughts from our peers.
Asst Prof. Harish photographed both the events fully. However, the winner is yet to be announced. At the end of the day all the participants were distributed with sweets as a token of appreciation.
The event was efficacious in making our day fun filling and also in portraying our talents.
Finally, I would like to thank our HOD on behalf of all the students for having given us such an opportunity and we hope we get to participate in more such events in future.

Birds Of Feathers

Authors: Adithya B, Sumana C – Department of CSE                                                         Date: 10 – 10 – 2015


More than 100 speakers, more than 40 teams gathered at the department of CSE and ISE to flock together. We called the event itself “Birds of Feathers” inspired by “Birds of feathers, flock together“; although just an idiom, it reverberated in every JITian’s heart on 10th of Oct when students met each other to share and learn.

matrix-300x200 board-300x200The event meant for the students was the brain child of Mr. Nagaraj A, HOD, Dept of CSE. It was organized in collaboration with Dept of ISE. We were initially very skeptical about how students are going to receive and participate in such an un-conference. It turned out, this was the exact collaborative learning they were waiting for. The idea was to allow students to pick up a topic of interest and speak about that for 15 min. They had to not just select a topic, but advertise and sell their ideas to build a crowd worth listening

IoT, Blue Brain, Animation using flash, Software Murder Mystery, Virtual Reality are just small examples of wonderful ideas students had to speak on. A matrix as big as 2 square feet was build by the student coordinators in the 2nd floor Quadrangle to display the venue and timings of each of the 42 talks at 7 venues in parallel. Well, if you are thinking the venue would be some classroom or an auditorium, you are wrong there. It was informally setup on the corridors of Dept of CSE and ISE.

Students cheered at the crowd calling them at their stalls, as if a private bus conductors would call for passengers. It was a exciting scene to witness the market place of ideas. Each venue was decorated with feedback boards and colorful posters.

Totally 3 awards and 2 consolation prizes were given away by both the Dept of CSE and Dept of ISE. I would be happy to display the full list of teams that won awards below.

15As a feather to already existing crowd were guests from Civil Dept, Electronics, Mechanical, Basic Science. Along side were Mr. Vinay from Smarteq, Mr. Srinivasan from Jain University, Mr. Vinayaka from Intel Securities, who enthusiastically participated in the BoF. Our Alumini Shridhar, Mazar, Prashanth, Anugna, Anushree, Kavitha, Dhanush, Anun and Supreeth visited the stalls and encouraged their Juniors at JIT greatly.

It was not just students but all faculty member of CSE/ISE co-participated, guided, brainstormed ideas and motivated students for BoF since the inception of the idea. It was treat to see teachers in action side by side with students.

The event spearheaded by Vindya Prabha and Prajwal of 7th sem under the guidance of Prof. Sumana and Prof. Pruthvi came to a conclusion at 4:15. Our beloved principal Dr. K  V  Mahendra told while he loved the interaction with students and  I quote; “I feel like doing engineering yet again”. He gave away the prizes to conclude the event and congratulated all the winners and the department of CSE and ISE for its success.
