Let’s grab CodeChef Laddus
CodeChef Laddus are the first thing you will get to lay your hands on. And in true Indian tradition, Codechef too have some laddus for you from it’s 7th birthday party. It’s not the traditional sugary goodness that you find at your local sweet store, but it certainly is sweeter. No matter which part of the world you belong to, Codechef is sure you will savour this new Indian delicacy from their kitchen!
After multiple partial attempts to fix our goodie delivering process, we present to you our new goodie distribution program aka the “Laddu Accrual System“.
With this, Codechef intend to give a major overhaul to the current goodie winning process. You will now have the option to choose what you want as your CodeChef goodie.
The way it has been envisaged is that Codechef will be distributing Laddus in place of goodies for your winnings and various other activities (described below), that you perform on Codechef system. Once you collect enough number of Laddus, you can then redeem them to get yourself anything from a wide range of CodeChef goodies.
So, let us tell you the activities, the laddus , and the process to use them.
