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.

Neo4J – DB Interest Group Event

Authors : Nagamayuri B S, Manjari M N, 6th sem IS                                                  Date: 6/04/2016

Neo4j is a highly scalable native graph database that leverages data relationships as first class entities, helping enterprises build intelligent applications to meet today’s evolving data challenges. Before the session, we were asked to install neo4j software.
We had a session on graphical database management using neo4j on 06th of april 2016. It was introduced by Srinidhi Kulkarni, Asst prof Dept of CSE and Harish Sir, Asst prof Dept of CSE.
The basics were taught by Srinidhi Sir and practical implementation by Harish k. It was started around 2 ‘o’ clock in the CS/IS seminar hall. The room was quite crowded as a whole of 60 and odd people were fit into the room.
Srinidhi Sir started off with the introduction to the different tools available for the database management. We started understanding it better when we actually started using neo4j. We were able to implement it under the guidance of Harish sir.
We were asked to sketch a graph(schema diagram) using neo4j about the “T20 World Cup”.
By the end of the session, Adithya sir asked us to implement a graphical database on “Facebook post” independently.
It was a good opportunity to know about a graph database neo4j.
This session was held under database self-interest group.
Co-ordinator for this group is Mrs Chhaya Rajashekaraih, Asst prof Dept of ISE

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 @ Intel Expo 2016

Author: Adithya B, Asst. Prof. Dept of CSE                                                              Date: 11/04/2016

Live demo has always been a enthusiastic display of technology in our college. This time around we were fortunate to get a chance to visit Intel Expo for the demonstration of technology in Intel. The Intel Edison Spider BOT,  Hand gesture  based king Julian game, smart interconnected watches, flight simulator, virtual reality and augmented photos were a treat to tech minds and fun for kids who had accompanied their parents in Intel.

The 3D printing technology which not just printed models but essentially scanned the models using HP Sprout computer was mind blowing. We throughly enjoyed and got some very good ideas as takeaway for our live demo at our college

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.

Project Review – II @ Dept of CSE/ISE

Author: Manoj Kumar M, Asst. Professor, Dept of CSE                                         Date: 06/02/2016


It is a feel good factor for Project guides if students show interest and enthusiasm to complete the planned modules and demonstrate it before Panel. We have observed that passion in our students, couple of days prior to the review, they were in that healthy tension, restless to meet the guides to show the progress, to clarify doubts, to show project documents like synopsis , work break down structure, ppts, work completion diaries and etc. 1

It is our practice to invite industry persons to conduct reviews keeping a foresight that their feedback will be beneficial for students to get exposed to real world scenarios which in turn helps to enhance their knowledge. This time we had invited eminent personalities Mr. Kiran, Scientist D, ISAC, Bangalore and Mr. Udaya, Senior Software Engineer, IBM, Bangalore.20160206_094834

Project Review 2 was scheduled on 06-02-2016 for final year students of department of Computer Science and Information Science. There were 15 projects. Students were informed to keep their projects up and running before approaching panel.

15 projects were setup and running on 6th of Feb at two labs of Dept of CSE and ISE. 2 panels of 3 members was setup to give more time for assessing projects and guide students to give better shape for the projects.

Panel 1:

  • Mr. Udaya, Senior Software Engineer, IBM,

  • Mr. Adithya B, Asst. Professor, Dept. of CSE,

  • Mr. Vallabh Mahale, Dept. of CSE.

Panel 2:

  • Mr. Kiran, Scientist D, ISAC,

  • Mr. Vadiraja A, Asst. Professor, Dept. of ISE,

  • Mr. Bharatesh C, Dept. of ISE.

20160206_123219All the students along with their guides were assembled at 2nd Floor Computer science lab for introducing the guests. We could sense the seriousness among the project groups as they were on time, turned up in formals, holding documents on one hand and kits, laptop on the other hand. After a quick introduction from Mr. Adithya B, the guests were presented a bouquet as a token of respect from Mr. Nagaraj A, Head of the department, CSE.

Parallel review sessions started at 9.45AM, and carried out till afternoon as each team has to be examined for the literature survey that they have done, how they divided the modules among each member of the team, development environment setup, methodology and future work they have planned. It took an average of 20 minutes to judge the work. It was 12.15 when we finished with all teams. 20160206_123339

Finally its time for concluding, all students and respective guides were assembled. Mr. Udaya expressed his amazement when learned that all the projects were developed in college, in fact we are proud to say that in our college students are encouraged to build their own projects in house. Mr. Udaya has also given valuable feedback about maintaining professionalism, following software development model and also highlighted to have strong commitments towards project.

Mr. Udaya and Mr. Kiran was very happy about the students being working in various real time challenging projects. They appreciated the guides for being backbone in preparing students by exposing them to real world requirements. 20160206_123435

The day was concluded with formal note of thanks to the guests. I got a chance to thank the guests, guides and students and conclude the session on a good note.
