About the Code Warriors
Delhi Public School, Vasant Kunj started functioning from its present premises in 1994, becoming a full-fledged secondary school in 1995, dedicated to excellence and providing quality education. The school started its computer club, the Code Warriors, in the year 1997. Arun Darlie Koshy was the founder president. The membership, at that time was limited. However, these few members gave excellent competition to other clubs, although still in the learning process. By 1998, the Code Warriors had begun to show their talent, and had started winning at many events. The real boost came when the Exun 1999 trophy, the most coveted trophy at that time in Delhi, came to DPS Vasant Kunj. The next year was even more eventful – with an extremely strong team it stamped its authority everywhere, by winning the Exun 2000 trophy, among four others in the same year. In 2001, eight Code Warriors cleared the National Informatics Olympiad in the Delhi State, with one going on to represent India in the International Informatics Olympiad, held in Korea. Code Warriors have achieved many milestones in the extra-curricular as well as the academic arena. The Code Warriors have a marked presence in the IITs, as well as prestigious foreign universities like Stanford University, Berkeley University, Nanyang Technical University (Singapore), Georgia Tech, Texas Tech, Drexel University and Texas A&M. The last two years have probably been the most eventful in the history of the Code Warriors, having won a host of computer symposiums. We take great pleasure in sharing a few of these. We were the overall winners at WarP 2007 held at DPS Mathura Road (sponsored by Samsung); overall winners at Matrix-Ecomm 2007 held at Mount St. Mary’s School; overall winners Exun 2006 held at DPS RK Puram (sponsored by Hewlett-Packard); overall winners at DynamiX 2006 held at Ramjas School, RK Puram; overall runners up at FORCE Fest 2006 held at Apeejay School, Sheikh Sarai; overall winners at St Mary’s School Fest 2006; apart from other outstanding achievements in WarP 2006 held at DPS Mathura Road (sponsored by LG); and MINET 2007 & MINET 2006 held at Mother’s International School. The Code Warriors not only participate in competitions, but also share and develop technology. Some of the prize-winning software developed by the Code Warriors are Ncrypt It, Map Builder, Canon, Graphics, and Digital Messenger, among others. Code Warriors have also gone on to innovate in tech fields, notably, forming the core team behind MapMyIndia.com, a popular site which now powers services like Yahoo! Maps India. In their ten glorious years of existence, the Code Warriors have won more than 900 individual awards, and more than 28 overall trophies. We believe that your company's support can help make Code Wars 2007 a grand event. The Code Warriors continue in their quest to excel in all technology-related fields.
