ACCSATHON is a golden opportunity for developers across India to demonstrate their ability to solve a challenge in a 24-hour coding session spread over two days and a night.
Massively large scale integration has made it possible for computing and networking capabilities to be integrated into boards smaller than your palm. But the upcoming wave of Internet of Things demands extremely tight design, coding and integration skills to keep not only the size but also power consumption down to a trickle.
Look around you and pick one of the pressing problems at hand can be tackled with tightly coded embedded computing solutions. Hack on Mobile, Web platforms or hardware projects. Leverage sensors for geographic location, temperature, pressure, wind, rain, movement, vision or sound to move stuff, ring bells, operate gates, and predict events and so on. How many lives can you save? How many disasters can you prevent? How many people's lives can be improved by your invention? Then show us the Code! Projects will be judged based on creativity, technicality, finish and usefulness.
"Come, compete shoulder to shoulder with the best creatives in ACCSATHON and showcase your talents to the world!"
"The Wipro ACCS open Innovation Hackathon is designed to be a robust platform for our ecosystem to use technology and design to solve some of the most curious problems through real time accelerated collaboration."
"Accsathon is an incredible opportunity for students, professionals and entrepreneurs to showcase the innovator in them, to the industry leaders, researchers and Organizations. This event will enable your first commit for the weekend."
Hacking: “Playful solving of technical work that requires deep understanding, especially of a computer system”.
From a hacker: “A person who delights in having an intimate understanding of the internal working of a system, computers and computer networks in particular”.
A hackathon (a.k.a hack day, hackfest or code fest) is an event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers and project managers collaborate intensively on software projects. In this hackathon, there is no restriction on the type of software being created or the base on which it is being created.
ACCSATHON is a golden opportunity for developers across India to demonstrate their ability to solve a challenge in a 24-hour coding session spread over two days and a night. It’s a great platform to give your ideas a life! This is the chance to let your expertise shine through.
Please note that this is Wipro-ACCS Hackathon is aimed at getting the input of hackers as a positive force, not in the sense of a security threat.

We have a host of technological experts in attendance who will tell you exactly how to catapult your innovations to fame and glory.
If you don’t know what a hack is or you have no clue what to develop you need not worry as we will help you with a wide range of open source technologies and API’s like Android, Qt, Ruby, kernel programming etc. You name it we have it.
You can go either way, by yourself or as a part of a team (max 3 members). Work on your own or put together an all star team with a back end developer, a database whiz, and a front end designer. Whichever way works best for you. However building a great team allows you to divide responsibilities and spend more time on your strongest areas. We would definitely recommend on having a developer/designer combination. You must have a great solution, and if your project is also visually appealing, you maximize your odds of getting noticed.
Yes. The winner or winning teams will receive exciting prizes.
Yes! Mouthwatering Free Food #MFF
Yes, we will provide free internet access.
For more details about this, please look in the Rules, Terms and Conditions section.
The jury composition will be announced closer to the date of the hackathon. Projects will be judged based on creativity, technicality, finish and usefulness. Top 2 teams will be rewarded.
We assure you, you won’t get bored and we will keep your creativity alive by feeding, watering and entertaining you in lovely ways. You are also liable to win goodies and gift bags through a host of mini events, that will be happening throughout the event. We will provide everything you need to have fun, be creative and productive and AWAKE! (Mini events like : Having live performers, Collaborative painting, Gaming consoles, etc)
