HackMania- Come Code Your Dreams!5 years ago Ruchika Agarwal
HackMania, organised by Hyderabad Entrepreneurs Society (HES), brings to us a two-day tech hackathon, being held at BITS Pilani, Hyderabad Campus. Its a one of its kind event in the city where innovative products and ideas will be showcased to reach their potential breakthrough.
What to expect?
Spread over a period of two days (this weekend on October 11th and 12th), the event will be a platform for sponsors to meet with some of the best developers, designers, and hackers from in and around Hyderabad.
The development time is stipulated to be 24 hours, starting at 12:00pm on Saturday and ending at 12:00pm, Sunday. This is the time where sponsors will be able to interact with participants, play the role of mentors, host workshops and also prepare a company exhibit on one of the provided booths.
Another major takeaway here are internship offers from more than 50 start-ups in the tech and non-tech fields.
Further, opportunity on bagging prizes worth more than Rs.50,000!
