Google Code-in is a global competition held for pre-university students where the participants associate themselves with one of the open source organisations (endorsed by Google) and perform multiple tasks, including writing or refactoring code, training, quality, outreach, documentation, user interface enhancement and so on... 

This competition was 49 days long and started on the 7th of December last year. It saw people coming in from  98 countries around the globe (a whole 2,700 Computer Science students in total), and the results came out on February 8.

Yathannsh is a student of Jayshree Periwal International School in Jaipur—and did we mention that he also happens to be a national level basketball player? #Tearsofpride
