In an attempt to boost the development of a positive environment in favour of innovation, ISTE MANIT has launched what is soon going to be Central India’s largest student held hackathon, Version Beta. Version Beta, simply put, is a 36-hour onsite hackathon where participants have to code innovative solutions to problems coming under the cloud of Home/Work or Health and Fitness. The flow of Version Beta will be as follows:
*Idea submission till October 20 (Yes the portal is already open, hurry!).
*Selected teams with the best ideas get to come here in MANIT for a 36-hour marathon of coding.
The Technical extravaganza also includes a workshop by Coding Blocks on ‘Competitive Programming and the guide to ace coding interviews’ which will be mentored by the highly regarded tutor Prateek Narang. In addition there will be a seminar on ‘How to start contributing to open source projects and approach tech giants for jobs and internships’ by none other than Mozilla, the pioneer of open source projects and Developer Circles by Facebook.
