Felicity 2K10, the annual cultural and technical fest of the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), is being organised from 19th to 21st February, at IIIT campus in Gachibowli. The 3-day festival will have a felicitous mix of technical, literary, sports and cultural events attracting thousands of students across the country.
The biggest attraction will be ‘Threads', a collection of programming and mathematics contests. Popular events in Threads include Codecraft, Kode Konundrums , Mathematika, Cache In, Time Limit Exceeded and Equity Pulse. The programming events will see participation from top ranked coders of online programming forums like TopCoder and Spoj. Codecraft is a contest that tests the coding capabilities of programmers through seemingly simple yet innately tricky problems. Mathematika is a contest for Math lovers, which challenges them with brainstorming problems of mathematics and computation. Kode Konundrums is a fusion of cleverly crafted puzzles and computer programming.
Equity Pulse is an online real-time simulation of a stock market. Break In If You Can is a new event which has been introduced this year - an online hacking contest. For the lovers of computer gaming, there is Zombie Zone, and for the business minded, there is BizWit. Other events include Felitube, an event which requires the participants to make creative videos from ordinary videos given to them; and Fast And The Curious, an event which challenges participants to pick up a new computing skill as fast as possible.
Kalakshetra, the cultural section includes Antakshari, contests in both Hindi and Telugu; an advertising event called ‘Can You Sell?; Euphonica that seeks to test the expertise of participants in playing musical instruments; and Street Play, skit contest.
