    An initiative by Directi, CodeChef for Schools aims to bring up a programming culture in high schools, to help school kids evolve as programmers.

    The video depicts the story of the British mathematician and computer scientist, Alan Turing, who is also known as the father of computer science and artificial intelligence. Alan Turing is known for inventing the Turing machine, which is considered the basis of all modern computing devices.

    During World War II, he began to work secretly for the British cryptanalytic department.

    The Germans had invented the Enigma machine to encrypt the messages that they used to send to their other Axis forces. Because of the sensitive nature of these messages they were encrypted by this powerful machine so that no one can read them apart from their friends. Breaking these messages required mastering cryptanalysis and it was a lot advanced.

    But with his mathematical and computing genius, Alan Turing played a very important role in deciphering the messages encrypted by the Enigma machine. He designed a machine known as a bombe that successfully decoded the German messages.

    The successful decryption of these messages by the Allies of the German "Enigma" Cipher was the most important cryptographic event during the war. This provided vital intelligence for the Allies, which came to their aid during the war to great extent.

    With his computing ability Alan succeeded in doing what plethora of democrats and heavy artillery failed to do, which shows the power of writing great code. The computing world has grown a lot since Alan Turing, but still the individuals who can write beautiful code are the superheroes.

    With the help of this video, we want to show what power programming has given us. There is nothing that a Code cannot do.
