About us

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.

FAQ

What is hackathon?

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.

Why ACCSATHON?

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.

WHAT TO DO?

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 peoples’ lives can be improved by your invention? Then code the code!

HOW TO DO?

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.

DO I HAVE TO DEVELOP SOMETHING ALL BY MYSELF OR CAN I BE PART OF A TEAM?

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.

WILL THERE BE PRIZES?

Yes. The winner or winning teams will receive exciting prizes.

WILL THERE BE FREE FOOD?

Yes! Mouthwatering Free Food #MFF

WILL THERE BE FREE INTERNET ACCESS?

Yes, we will provide free internet access.

DO I HAVE TO BRING MY OWN LAPTOP?

YES.
