Evidently, SEED is just a kid in the corporate world

Despite several efforts to contact SEED Infotech regarding their mishap for the past two days, they do not respond. E-mails, twitter updates, facebook posts being deleted from their end, says everything: SEED Infotech is lazy. They cannot afford to sponsor an event such as this one. What’s more, today’s challenge makes no sense whatsoever! SEED tried to put up a memorial contest to pay their respects to Dennis Richie, the creator of the C. They called it a “mega-event in January“, I call it a “mega-flop in January“.

The day they came to The Wilson College, they seemed to be disorganized. They didn’t seem to know what they were doing themselves.

SEED has put down the level of computing. SEED has brought their level from zero to nil, well, to top it all off, they had an insane web programmer, who didn’t know what he was doing. Notice the actual link of the page, followed by what it’s supposed to be:


Clearly, they do not have the potential to host such an event, and must be never allowed to.

They haven’t even once shown a sign of improvement, answers incorrect, questions incorrect, what more is there to it? This proves SEED’s incompetence in hosting an event, which surprising should be pretty easy enough to pull off correctly.

Last but not the least, @SEEDInfotech, your just a kid in the corporate world. Congratulations on winning this title.

As Francis Pereira says, “good talent is always hard to find“, and SEED does not have such talent.

SEED hits the pit again #iknowvention

SEED continues to make mistakes.

So is today’s challenge:

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
 return 0;

The answer for the above is 0, as the fourth element in the array “seed” does not exist. This is because of the index value, which starts from 0. Had it been 3, then it would print out the character code for d, and that would be the right answer.
However, none of the options had the value 0, they had some other values.

@SEEDInfotech, why make such obvious mistakes on your side? Didn’t you already learn from my last post? There simply is no room for such mistakes!
Isn’t there any moderator smart enough in your company?

@SEEDInfotech #iknowvention

SEED makes Blunder! #iknowvention

Alright, so I’m taking part in this SEED Infotech C programming contest, and here’s one of yesterday’s challenges:

 if(printf("C for yourself how it works \n");

One of the options were
a) C for yourself how it works infinate times

Now isn’t that catchy? Look at it clearly, there’s one pair of brackets missing!

@SEEDInfotech, how did you choose that as the right answer?

NON-Standards Compliant C++ with Mumbai University

Mumbai University fails to keep up with the ever-evolving C++ syntax. Making Turbo C/C++ as their prescribed IDE, Turbo C/C++ is ancient and will not compile with the present syntax of C++. Here is the simplest example:

#include <iostream.h>
#include <conio.h>
void main()
	cout << "Hello";

The above code, when compiled with g++ 4.3.4, will give the following errors, but with Turbo C/C++ will compile and run just fine:

firstApp.cpp:1:22: error: iostream.h: No such file or directory
firstApp.cpp:2:19: error: conio.h: No such file or directory
firstApp.cpp:4: error: '::main' must return 'int'
firstApp.cpp: In function 'int main()':
firstApp.cpp:6: error: 'cout' was not declared in this scope

Here is the same code, but following the correct syntax:

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main()
	cout << "Hello";
	return 42;

will compile and run just fine.

Argggg!!! This never ends! They even introspect on Valid XHTML and CSS standards!
