As a part of the Unacademy Group, Codechef will double down on its mission on creating the best coding platform along with high-quality free courses.
CodeChef was started in 2009 by Bhavin Turakhia, Founder and CEO of Flock, Radix and Zeta, as a part of Directi. It was developed as a platform to help programmers enhance their skills and create a community. Moving forward, Codechef will be under the umbrella of Unacademy, instead of Directi.

In a blog post, Anup Kalbalia, Business Unit Head at Codechef, said:
“He (Bhavin) has remained an unwavering guide and sponsor for us, doing everything possible to better the coding community.”

Anup wrote, “While Unacademy is the new custodian of Codechef, it will not change any of Codechef’s initiatives. All our existing programmes and contests will continue to remain exactly as they are, and will only grow better in our new home. This change in custodianship will mean that we have access to greater resources, teams, technology, platforms and capital. “
