Hack In the North is one of the largest student-organized hackathons in India, aimed at the budding hackers who are yet to have a taste of production-oriented design environment.
There will be food, Internet, guides, power and anything else that will be needed.
Participants just need to do one thing: Brainstorm ideas and implement them.
What is HackInTheNorth?
HackInTheNorth is the annual Hackathon organized at Indian Institute of Information Technology, Allahabad. It is one of the largest student-organized hackathons in India.
How is HackInTheNorth run?
HackInTheNorth is run by Aparoksha Team and GeekHaven(Technical Society of IIIT Allahabad).
Can we apply as a team?
Not quite — you and your intended teammates should all submit individual applications. But if you get an invitation and some of your teammates don’t, shoot us an email at [email protected] and we’ll try to sort things out.
What should I bring?
We’ll send you a comprehensive list once it’s closer to showtime, but it’ll be basically what you’d need for any sleepover: laptop, charger, deodorant (!), change of clothes. You won’t need food or drinks; we’ve got you covered there.
How and when will I hear back?
We’ll be releasing decisions weekly — if you’ve submitted your application by a Friday, you’ll be getting an email back by the next Friday!
Who can apply?
If you’re enrolled in a high school, college, or university, or if you left school during the current school year, you’re good to go!
What do people normally make?
You can make anything you like. Most of the hacks revolve around web or phone apps, or working with hardware.
What are you looking for in an application?
Above anything else — passion. Tell us what you care about, what excites you. We want to know what’ll drive you to start and continue hacking, whether it’s your first time or your fifteenth. If there’s something about you that stands out from the “typical” hacker, we’d love to hear about that, too!
How much does it cost to attend?
Zero. HackInTheNorth is free for everyone.
Will you be offering travel reimbursements?
We would support you if you can’t afford to travel to HackInTheNorth. Shoot us a mail if you need reimbursements.
When are the applications closing?
Applications close March 20! If you haven’t submitted by then, we’ll review whatever’s there.
