<Daksh'18 hackathon/>

An Initiative to motivate programmers

Daksh, the second largest techno-management fest of South India is conducted every year by SASTRA University. This year, it's all set to happen from Feb 23 to Feb 25. Stepping into its twelfth year, Daksh hosts a multitude of events pertaining to each cluster along with various power talks, workshops, expo and other fun events. Every year, Daksh brings in talents under one canopy. This year the theme of Daksh is Industry 4.0. Aspiring to discover the tech-savvy buddies, Daksh is all set to host an inter college hackathon contest. GUVI Geek Technologies have come on board with us and are providing the platform to host this hackathon.

Overview

It is indeed a well known fact that every deed has a consequence. In this cyberpunk culture filled with gadgets and gizmos, one can pretty much say every program has a code sequence. In order to test the virtuosity of every programmer out there, we're very happy to present GUVI's <Daksh'18 hackathon/>, the ultimate armageddon for the tech aficionados! Roll up your sleeves and get ready to decipher the programmer in you.

Themes

FinTech:

When money has become digital, let's explore and build new financial products. This Theme brings together FinTech developers and designers to develop future financial products and discover new technologies. Example applications include innovations in risk management, trading, investing, personal finance, retail banking, regulatory compliance, mobile payments.


AI:

If you are into deep learning, bots, machine learning, or neural networks, this theme is just for you. AI is the science of making machines think and act like humans. The main idea of AI is to advance systems that exceed or at least, equal human intelligence. The quest of reducing human error has resulted in the rise of artificially intelligent machines.


EdTech:

Getting bored of the traditional way of learning? This theme is for you. If you are a developer or designer with a great idea for an app or web app to create the next generation of learning solutions for use in the classroom, apps that can have a real impact on learning or measure the impact of learning, build products under this theme.


Mashups:

Define your API Mashup. Rather than create something from scratch, take advantage of existing services and then connect them in counter-intuitive ways. The growing variety of APIs – many of them free to use as a trial – means a talented team can produce some very powerful software in a short time.


Non-profits:

Build things to show your support for Philanthropy. Any products built for the love of humanity, in the sense of caring and nourishing can be built under this theme. Build products for the social cause.
