1. Online Screening Round
There's no special work needed for this round. Just fill in the registration form as usual. For the abstract, pick a domain of your choice and submit an idea. Note that you don't need to implement the same idea at the hackathon. We will simply use this to judge your problem solving skills and creativity. Your Github links (Or GitLab, BitBucket or even HackerRank) will sell us on your coding proficiency. If you don't have one of those, link us to something else that you've made. Maybe an app or a website. Registrations close at 11:59 PM, 17th September 2019. So don't delay too much.
2. The 24-Hour Hackathon
This is the on-site hackathon taking place at Cove, Kotturpuram from 21st to 22nd September 2019. We'll give you all the required information regarding this if you do get selected for the round. But check out our FAQ which should cover most of your questions.
YAH is open to anyone 18 years or older who has a valid *college ID card*
and is interested in working on creating fun, cutting edge products.
Rs. 420 per person. We'll take care of all your meals & refreshments! You'll pay this only if you're selected for the on-site round. Online round is free of cost!
While developers are necessary, anyone is welcome. UI/UX designers, marketers, or even if you have close to 0 coding experience and are just
interested in trying a hackathon for a first time, anyone can participate as long as they have a valid college ID.
A hackathon is a very hands-on and grassroots event. You will have to bring your laptops, mobile phones, Oculus Rifts, wearable devices,
or anything that you can use in your product but above all, come in with a proper night's sleep and your brain! :P
You can have a team of 1-4 members from the same or from different institutions. We recommend having a team with
a mix of design and development skills. Don't want to be all code and no talk after all. :P
Registrations will close at 11:59 PM, 17th September, 2019. We will announce the shortlisted teams shortly after that. If selected, you'll be expected to make the payment before 19th September, 2019.
Drugs, alcohol, weapons of any kind. If you're unsure of it, ask us about it.
You get a great opportunity for peer networking, compete to win massive prizes, chances to gain internships or
job offers from some cool companies, an amazing learning experience, punny jokes and some awesome memories. ;)
No, we do not offer any reimbursement for travel expenses.
You do! The team that develops the project is the owner of the project and IP. You can make it open source,
form a company with others you met during the event or put it in a repo and never use it again :P. Its upto YOU!
Of course! As long as your final product is something original, there is no harm in using something to help you achieve that.
Of course! We have a lot of mentors coming in from many different fields and all of them are there to help you out.
Our team will evaluate both your abstract to test your problem solving skills and creativity as well as your GitHub (Or GitLab or BitBucket or anything else).
Based on a combination of both of these, we will shortlist teams.
Our judges will be evaluating teams on the 3 I's - Innovation (Originality & Creativity of the idea),
Implementation (Technical challenge & completeness of the project), and Impact (Business or Social Impact.)
We'll be providing you with lunch & dinner on day 1 and breakfast & lunch on day 2.
We'll also have a stash of snacks available for everyone throughout the day.
