What is a Hackathon?
A hackathon (also known as a hack day, hackfest or codefest) is an event in which people with great ideas collaborate intensively to develop projects in a short amount of time. Normally, the participants are computer programmers and others involved in software development and hardware development, including graphic designers, interface designers, and project managers.
Hacking is an unorthodox way to solve problems; however, it is most often perceived negatively in the public. A hackathon is an event that gathers programmers with different skill sets to “hack”, or work collaboratively, on a software project. Hackathons typically last between one to three days. Some hackathons are intended simply for educational or social purposes, although in many cases the goal is to create a product that used to be just an idea. Hackathons could have a specific focus, for example, it could be a particular theme like healthcare or finances, or it could be a specific platform like hacks that run on Arduino. There are also Hackathons that do not limit their hacks and accept any and all projects from its attendees.
What is Asian Hack?
Asian Hack is a two day hackathon where students from different semesters form groups or teams of 4-5 with each other and solve a problem based on some themes or category.
Our Mission and Vision
To motivate students to involve in more extracurricular activities and to have students, professionals, and the general startup and tech communities working together. To create an articulated and organized hacker community in the university who are willing to share the knowledge through events like hackathons and other activities for educational purposes and to develop innovative solutions as a way of moving forward. Create a platform for students to unleash their creativity and collaboration skills, two vital skills for future learning and career development, through coming up with ideas and building the product collaboratively. Programming culture encourages people to think out of the box. Students challenge themselves to create something new and to take ownership of what they create. These are important but often neglected experiences.
