What the HACK it is?

So.. We are organizing our very first hackathon in our Bangalore office this weekend - and both adrenaline and expectations are running high.

When we rolled out the idea of organizing a hackathon to our engineers, there was unprecedented interest shown by all - we should do *this* and *that*; it should be *here* and *now*; rules should be *so* and *such*… It was heartwarming to see such enthusiasm around the event. This has led to pressure on the organizing team to ensure smooth handling throughout the entire event. Our Gurgaon chapter of the hackathon was organized a few weeks ago, which went quite well. We can take heart from that.

For the event, we decided to restrict the team size to 3, to ensure greater participation from all within. Each team was asked to designate a name for themselves, and some innovative names have been registered. Around 20 teams are participating in the event, and we are excited to see what innovations come through. We will keep you posted on how things pan out. We will also be tweeting live at our handle @goibibo_tech.

FRIDAY can’t come soon enough! ;)
