What is a hackathon?

Hackathons are a place where many passionate professionals or students in Technology and Business Development actively participate - form diverse teams, make their pitches, adds their expertise and work towards creating a solution.

It is one such opportunity where you make many new friends from diverse backgrounds whom you would have never met, and learn new things from mentors and teammates. Above all, Hackathons helps you to see a problem from multiple perspectives and arrive at a solution.

Who can attend?


Our hackathons are free to enter!

Why are hackthons important?


You’ll gain more practical knowledge in one hackathon than from a month of lectures. Hackathons provide a real-world experience, working in teams to learn new skills and create new products. Similar to the product cycles of a startup company.


When you work with others, you’ll pick up so many new tips and tricks. These are all skills which will make you a better developer and help you get a job/internship. You’re going to love the inventive and smart people you meet at hackathons. You’ll get to meet people from all over the world you’d never get a chance to meet otherwise.


Hackathons are like career fairs on steroids. If you’re looking for an internship or a job in the tech industry, guess where companies are recruiting? At hackathons of course!

What skills do I need?


"But I don't have any experience - I won't be any good!"


Nonsense - Everyone has to start somewhere, and we will have mentors at the events and workshops to help you along. One of the most awesome qualities of hackathons is the sheer number of lovely people that you'll meet at them, so no matter your skill level or expertise, you'll always be able to have an awesome time, pick up loads of new skills, and make new friends!
