Their Spring schedule of Angelhack Hackathon had their pit-stop at Hyderabad which was collaborated locally with 10,000 start-ups (a NASSCOM initiative) and venue partner – PurpleTalk. Everyone who attended the event, held on 10th and 11th May 2014, experienced a plethora of emotions. Opening doors to the 200+ registered attendees, the day commenced with utmost zeal and enthusiasm. The revered “HACKATHON” commenced at 12noon amidst nervous and young energetic gathering. The intense day-night-day schedule spread over 24hours that probably was the longest or perhaps the shortest for every participant. This event was filled with brain-storming sessions, intense times work out-put, power naps, inter-group interaction, interrupted with the much needed red-bull boosters. All this also echoed the PurpleTalk office flamboyantly.

The Angelhack “HACKATHON” bought together challenges and accomplishments like none other. A platform so vast that it not only helps groom budding talent, but also renders in a practicality to the dreamers, making them achievers. The multi-fold exposure that’s driven by the inter-action of fellow members of the same professions opens up a newer world of opportunities. A symbiotic relation between students, innovators, developers, start-ups and businesses is established based on every piece of the puzzle, giving in their expertise to render a product that’s creative and efficient. The “think-enact-be out of the box” syndrome aptly describes the outcome of the multi-faceted event – the Angelhack HACKATHON.

Participants worked on their ideas continuously for 24hours in the hunt for producing something revolutionary. Many teams came up with really innovative ideas which were completely new and few with ideas which are already there in the industry but with a completely different approach.

Few Participated Teams:

A team from Anurag college developed a mobile app which shows the fuel consumption for a ride, based on the vehicle’s mileage using its GPS and other metrics. And another set of students from the same college developed an app which tracks the college bus location using the checkins done by the students travelling in the college bus. It will be helpful for the parents or college authority to track the bus location.

Another team from IIIT Hyderabad developed a mobile app for car pooling. Students of 11th standard from FIIT JEE created an application based on the concept similar to Snapchat. An added features is that you will get notified when someone sends in a picture of you. The idea is something similar to Facebook tagging.

Many teams worked on “Spread The Word” concept “” and developed mobile applications.

A team from VIT Chennai designed a portal which will track all your social activities and display it in a single portal. Klout does the same thing, but this team had a completely different approach towards it.

A group of friends from different colleges had a mockup design of an application which will show the user the digital menu of the restaurant. These days most of the restaurants provide you with a digital tablet to see their menu and order food. They had a mockup design ready which will let the restaurant owners get rid of the tablets and let the users use their own smart devices to see the menu and order the food.

A team from Accenture developed a social app which let the party folks to find for their partners in the nearby pubs.
