Updates on the CodeChef website - October 2021

Single Click Login

  • We now have single click log-in. This means users don’t require to connect their Google account separately to log in to CodeChef. If the Gmail account (signed in to the browser) matches the one in their profile, they will be able to log in directly via a single click. It will work similarly with FB and GitHub connect.

Sign Up referral system

  • Now we have a mechanism to use our referral system for CodeChef signup. The referral code is your username and the referral link is https://www.codechef.com/signup?ref=username OR https://www.codechef.com/signup?REF=username and the referral dashboard can be accessed here. Please note there is no bonus for this referral.

New Home Page

  • To provide a better user experience in the community, CodeChef has revamped the home page with a new design. We have tried to declutter everything and also made it responsive.

If you have any feedback regarding the same, do post them here.
