CodeStash is a student community that aims to foster coding culture that exists in IIT KGP.
Entities under CodeStash[edit | edit source]
Grimoire Of Code[edit | edit source]
Grimoire of Code (GOC) is the Competitive Programming branch of CodeStash. The main motive of the group is practise Competitive Programming and compete in ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest (ACM ICPC).
This branch is currently maintained by TheLethalCode.
This group is where budding developers in IIT Kharagpur, who are interested in Android app development come together to share resources and learn mobile app development.
This branch is currently maintained by Kaustheta.
A platform where Game Development enthusiasts meet to discuss, practise and learn game development. The prefered platform used in here is unity engine based Unity 3D which offers a ton of resources to help developers to focus on developing the game interface and logic rather than on struggling a get an interface setup.
This branch is currently maintained by Jee Van Kur.
Initiatives[edit | edit source]

Codex is an initiative by CodeStash, IIT Kharagpur, that was founded for the sole purpose of helping freshers coming to the institute to get started and improve their coding skills. This facebook group, open to the students of IIT Kharagpur, is a platform where students can get their doubts cleared and communicate with like-minded people. This group is currently under the guidance of CodeClub, KOSS, and MetaKGP. Codex also provides the feature of being anonymous while asking a query.
Events[edit | edit source]

A class was conducted for freshers, in computer programming ahead of ACM ICPC and Robotix Winter Workshop (A requirement for Image processing phase).
Code2Gather[edit | edit source]
An event where freshers with enthusiasm for sport-coding gathered and solved multiple competitive coding problems with their algorithms discussed at the end.
Achievements[edit | edit source]
ACM ICPC mentorship[edit | edit source]
CodeStash helped seven teams (six fresher teams) from IIT Kharagpur to get mentors for their registration into ACM ICPC, which is often considered as the Olympics of programming. This is almost the first time in KGP that freshers (almost twenty of them) appeared for the competition.
