"I would like to thank the Programming Club, Ahmedabad University for introducing me to competitive programming in my first year itself. I have participated in almost all programming contests on CodeChef since November 2017. I think that really helped me in improving Data Structures and Algorithms, logic, speed of solving, Coding and Debugging skills. I really liked the idea of Project Based Learning at Ahmedabad University which helped and encouraged me to focus on understanding and application of various Computer Science fundamentals. I would say the methodology of teaching was perfect at Ahmedabad University. A very good rank in programming competitions like Google Kickstart helped me in getting an interview. For interview preparation, I was quite confident about problem solving and the Data Structures and Algorithms part. I also took some mock interviews with some of my friends and focused on communication skills."
