It is our pleasure to present the first edition of Automata report. Programming Ability skill is the key for jobs in IT centric world.
In the last few years, thanks to jobs becoming global, the importance of good programmers has increased manifold. It has over the
years become an important criteria of hiring for most of the IT software companies, both at the international and intra-national
levels. A candidate with good programming skills is so important , because there are cases where one doesn’t understand the
program statement and if does then fails to implement it properly.
The report tries to identify patterns in employability across different regions, analyzing in detail the distribution of employability
across various roles. Herein, it studies how employability varies across different groups: We do the first systematic study of
Programming Ability of engineers across India. The study is based on Automata, an automated tool measuring programming skills
used across the world by industries. Automata is a 60 minute test taken in compiler integrated environment. It rates the
candidates on multiple parameters of Programming Ability , Programming Practices, run-time complexity and test case coverage.
It uses advanced artificial intelligence technology to automatically grade programming skills.
The report follows the tradition of our National Employability Reports to uncover the gaps in Programming Ability by gender, tier
of college, top 100 colleges vs. rest of the colleges, etc. Based on the reports, we have come up with specific suggestions on how
to improve Programming Ability in various parts of the country.
With commitment to the development and progress of higher education in India!
