The online coding contest Hack The Hack was an initiative taken by VNR IEEE CS SB on March 30, 2020 from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. as a part of series of events conducted by the VNR IEEE Student Branch. The contest was a huge success with unmatched support from the CS Chapter Advisor - Dr. G. Ramesh Chandra, Student Branch Counsellor - Dr. Y. Padma Sai and undoubtedly, all the volunteers who joined hands altruistically to make this happen.
