A Hackathon, also known as a codefest, is a social coding event that brings computer programmers and other interested people together to improve upon or build a new software program The word hackathon is a portmanteau of the word hack,which means clever programmer and marathon, an event marked by endurance.The concept of the hackathon, also called a hackday of hackfest, was born out of the open source community.This time on popular demand IIIT-A is organising a hackathon named PROTOTYPE sponsored by Headout and Design Innovation Center for student developers and designers from all over the country.
This will be a 36 hours long event and will start on October, 11 and end on October, 13.
