What is Hackatron?

Hackatron is a 36 hours Hackathon and an attempt made by the Hackathon and Coding Club of BIT Sindri to bring out the developer inside you. Hackatron provides a platform to showcase your skills and stand out from the crowd. We believe that given proper resources, anything is possible. The raison d'être of Hackatron is to introduce students to the open-source community and its benefits. In Hackatron, participants are encouraged to brainstorming problems and collaborate to design and develop unique solutions to real-world problems. We believe that people with passion can change the world for the better and that the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do. So, it is a call for all the geeks out there. Come, and be a part of this event, and make a dent in this universe. All you have to do is to DESIGN, DEBUG, and DEPLOY.
