Board Games & More

Board games are a great way to spend time together. The team was at Gameistry for a high-stakes team game.

All Hail the Queen

Pooja has been crowned the two-time champion and undisputed heavyweight of crunching code! Pooja had the best answer to the code-crunch on:

Given an array of integers, find and print the maximum number of integers you can select from the array such that the absolute difference between any two of the chosen integers is less than or equal to 1.
For example, if your array is a = [1, 1, 2, 2, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5], you can create two subarrays meeting the criterion: [1, 1, 2, 2] and [4, 4, 5, 5, 5]. The maximum length subarray has 5 elements.

Code Crunch

Kamlesh had the best answer to the code-crunch on:

Given an array of integers where each element represents the max number of steps that can be made forward from that element.You have to return the minimum number of jumps to reach the end of the array (starting from the first element). If an element is 0, then we cannot move through that element.
Note: assuming all integers are non negative.
Example:
Input : arr[] = {1, 3, 5, 8, 9, 2, 6, 7, 6, 8, 9}
Output : 3 (1-> 3 -> 8 -> 9)

Code Crunch

A weekly competition to Kindle our minds with a query designed to push the limits of logical reasoning and problem solving efficiently. The winner of each week gets the title of “CODE CRUNCH MASTER OF THE WEEK”.

#Whistle-Podu

Cricket was being promoted as a gentleman's game until they came into the picture. Spunky, brash and many cheeky shots later, the team ended up at Blind-Chemistry for some unwinding and snacks.

Diwali Celebrations at Techtinium

Diwali is all about coming together and celebrating happy moments with loved ones. On this auspicious and festive occasion, Diwali parties and family get-together are very popular. A small puja was arranged in the office for employees and their families.

Diwali Lunch

Diwali 2019 is here and the festive cheer is for all to see. If India is dubbed as the land of festivals, then the festival of lights surely tops as one of the most significant festivals celebrated in the country. The Techtinium team celebrated the Festival of Lights with a feast at the Great Kebab Factory in Egmore.

Badminton Time

The game is one of the world's fastest racket sports. The theory was that we would play vigorously for an hour and burn 480 calories (or so they said). However the team followed the game up with a sumptuous meal of Parathas and Bhaturas.

There went that theory!
