    team leader formed the team before registration of the team members…team members used the same username as given by the team leader…team leader registered the team and he got a team number..but message in the team members ‘view your team’ tab is “you have not yet formed a team”

    1. webmaster

      No you cannot give the same username as the team leader when you register. It will show you an error if you give the same username as another person, there will be a check availability option beside the text box. You must have registered with a different user name for sure. If you got your Team number, now register the new users by clicking on the option form your team in the Code vita log in. Then again enter the name and CT number. Note that the leader must do this.

    2. webmaster

      If you are still in problem, and my reply doesn’t help post your problem still more clearly.

    Can direct applicants register for codeVita?
    Since Tcs has invited our college for the competition(Thadomal shahani Engineering college,Bandra ), i want to know even if i am not a campus applicant how do i register for it. I filled up Direct Applicant form n got a DT ref no.

    1. webmaster

      You can post directly Neelam, formalities doesn’t matter. We are your friends… 🙂 It has been said that the code vita is for students who are above the batch 2013, so it depends on your batch. Are you currently pursuing your final year, or you are a passed out candidate? Besides, the chances are highly favorable to Campus Applicants,
      See the third point in this link, it has been clearly mentioned CT, So sorry, but don’t leave it here. A wiser act would be, you have campus commune right? Log in into it and you will have help line in that, after launching Campus Commune. There you can post this problem, TCS may take appropriate steps for you to pursue Code Vita.

      1. neelam

        yes i m currently in final year.. n did u mean helpline no?
        well each time i called them i got different answers from each of them!!!

        1. webmaster

          No i din mean helpline number. You are in campus commune right? They you will Launch campus commune from after logging in into that, you will “Launch campus commune”. Hope you are familiar with that. After launching campus commune, if you observe the options in the top keenly you can find “Helpline” option. There if you post your prob they will reply in a day or two.

        2. webmaster

          That will be like sending a message…

    2. webmaster

      Hope you are clear with the reply…

  3. Santhu

    Hello, If i register as a team leader by using my CT ref id & password, should my team memebrs also need to register as a team member by using their login credential?

    1. Arun

      Hello Santhu, yes, your team members have to register too. And after you login using your CT no. you should mention your team members along with their CT no. too. You will then get a team number for your team.

  4. Tanmay

    can only students who are in the last year of b.e. participate??
    i have 2 members in my 3member team who are in third year engg currently…can they participate in codevita too?

  5. webmaster

    Sorry tanmay, the rules clearly says anyone from the batch of 2013 can form team and register online. But you can keep them aside for help. But cant have them participated.

  6. lalitha

    hi..iregistered as team leader with other two team members…but now i forgot the username and team members can access their accounts…but i can’t…can u help me..i know only my team number…

    1. webmaster

      Hi, lalitha. Simple,
      go to this link and click on forgot password and enter your CT number and the secret question that you posted while you registered for the CodeVita. And thats it you are done with the password problem. You must be having your CT number with you, if not check out the mails from the TCS while you were registering for the Campus Commune.

    I Have entered my university instead of institute in nextstep portal .So can i modify it now .Is there any way of doing it. ?

    1. webmaster

      No problem, Sri Latha… 🙂 You can edit those details easily. Only details like name, mother’s maiden name, Date of Birth and CGPA are the stuffs that we cannot edit.

  10. gowtham

    Plz! Sir, I want some more information regarding to how this contest be just give a few
    Examples on how complex it’s, I love programming very much.

    1. webmaster

      How in the sense? I cant get u gowtham, please be clear. The contest must be mostly open and it is conducted for 2 days. You just prepare for coding and during the practice session you will be fully equiped with how the contest will be. So don’t worry about how it will be. The problems may be similar to the one in Aspirations 2020 or codechef in NITT, i mean in that format.

      1. webmaster

        If you need assistance in such problems ping us we would mail or post some similar problems and we will also show you threads for such problems.

  11. Srilatha

    is it possible to change from direct applicant to campus applicant after having received the DT number?

    1. webmaster

      Sorry sri latha, we cannot change Direct applicant to Campus applicant.

  12. Amrita

    Hello. i registered as a team lead and since my team members had not registered yet, i chose the option “do this later” during my registration on the team formation page. now that they too have registered for the contest how do i proceed?

    1. webmaster

      Hi Amrita, thats fine you are done with the basic procedures. Now next thing is that you click on form your team and enter your team mates unique username that they entered during code vita registration and their CT reference Number. Thats if you are done. Now if you click view your team you will have your team. See to it that dont change your team mates often. That may lead to the disqualification of the team or team members.

  13. Rohit

    Sir, is it compulsory to upload a team photograph for a team to get registered…?

    1. webmaster

      No, rohit. The necessity for team photograph is that if your Team wins to post that in TCS site or such publishing purposes they collect photos. So do upload it. Today is last day, make it ASAP.

  17. sindhu

    1. webmaster

      Sorry sindhu. We dont have options in Code vita site to retrieve password and username from code vita.

  18. Rohit

    hello sir 🙂
    i registered as a team leader and now when i opened my codevita account to confirm my registeration… and i clicked on view team it says..
    You have been nominated in the following teams :
    but does not show any team no.

    is everything all right…..?

    1. webmaster

      Hi Rohit, the team leader need not confirm, its the team members who have to accept that they are confirming to participate with you for code vita as a team. You no need to panic, just ask the team members to confirm the registration you will have your team in below the prompt “You have been nominated for the following team:” with a tick mark in the status column for the team you have applied for. 🙂 Thats it, if you have problem continue the thread.

  19. Kishore

    27 May 2010 74.0 MB BerliOS or

    1. webmaster

      Yes, Tina. If you prefer to code in C, then choose this one. But i would advice to go for linux platforms to code. Its a good practice to do programs in linux. You will learn much more. Try to use Linux OS, there are several variants for Linux as Ubuntu(Common Desktop), Fedora(Red Hat variant), Red Hat, Cent OS, Suse etc.
