The Department of Computer Science and Engineering in association with the SRM AP Hackathon club is organising a webinar titled Introduction to Hackathon: Best Practices from 9 am to 10 am, followed by a 24-hour internal hackathon C2Hack at 10 am on September 24, 2022.
A hackathon is a social coding event bringing together computer programmers and other technology enthusiasts together to conceive a new software programme or redesign an existing programme to enhance its performance. Hackathons present a constructive platform for developing prototypes for various applications and programming languages or for providing solutions to real-life challenges ranging from educational technology to disaster management.
Hackathons are thus classified into different types based on their objectives and themes. Having a well-defined set of rules is a necessity while organising a hackathon. The webinar intends to introduce students to the fundamentals of hackathon and some of the effective practices one may follow while participating in a hackathon. Students will also be given the opportunity to test their hacking skills in an internal hackathon C2Hack following the session.
Join the webinar and learn how to use your tech genius to find solutions to the greatest of real-life challenges. Every hackathon is a smart route to actualise your ideas into innovations.
