Hackathon is an annual workshop conducted in various universities in the month of August/September. This workshop usually has a competition where users have to do some sort of app or website development. There are many teams which compete to win some prize money.
Last year, we hosted such an event in association with Thapar University, Patiala and Startup Punjab. Hackathon 2019 was held at Thapar University itself from August 30th to 1st September. We were grateful to host the event in association with Startup Punjab and Thapar University as the ''Official Tech Partner''. Many teams of developers and programmers participated in the event to win the cash prize of Rs 25,000 and Adcom Goodies. It was a 3-day workshop which saw many sharp minds and they developed some amazing things. The winning prize of Rs 25,000 was bagged by Prayag Lehana, Pranav Magotra, Abhishek Sakari, Utkarsh Mishra, Snehal Shetty, and Aditi Dona (Team Name BUG KILLER) guided by academic mentor Dr. Prashant Singh Rana and industrial mentor Mr. Nikhil Verma held at JSS Academy of Technical Education, Noida managed by Yamaha Motor Solutions Pvt Ltd.
One complete report was published in the official newsletter of Thapar University. The event saw some huge numbers in terms of participation than the previous years, and we are delighted to host such an event which gives such a huge stage to those sharp and brilliant minds. We are proud of these developers and programmers. Take a bow!
