HACKFEST



3RD-4TH MAY,2014

SCROLL DOWN

HACKFEST?


While the word hacking has always had negative connotations, it has also come to represent technical aptitude, innovation, ingenuity and to some extent jugaad . We aim to bring this very spirit to VIT.

Come this MAY, 120 people from all branches of VIT will meet each other and find people whose ideas they like or who like their ideas. They will then form teams and work for 30 hours to come up with a proof of concept prototype of that potentially revolutionizing idea.

The event will kickoff with a pre-hack social mixture on MayDay (May 01). Then the following weekend, the hackfest will start with one minute pitches of ideas. After the pitching session, the participants will be encouraged to interact with each other and find people who pitched ideas that they liked or the people who have particular expertise that they need to build their prototype. Once the teams are formed, members sit down to brainstorm for the idea pitched and START HACKING !

The event will end with a 3 minute pitch wherein the team presents their idea and the final prototype.
