Testimonials

“.hack(); was my first ever hackathon and it helped me get to know many students from different colleges and universities who had some really astonishing ideas. It helped me learn something and realise that I had to develop my skills and that's my biggest take away from .hack()”.

~Devika

“I had participated in multiple other hackathons before, and .hack(); was special because my team won 2nd prize. There were a few talks to inspire us at the beginning of the hackathon. The event was well organized, and the volunteers kept us active throughout the whole event.”

~Joel

“Before this, I had a common misconception that a hackathon only involves coding for an entire day. As the main aim of a hackathon is problem solving, .hack(); really helped me learn new technologies and meet new people. We experimented with many new concepts and achieved the second prize! ”

~Shan
