Just bring your own laptop, development tools (pre-packaged libraries, widgets, and frameworks) and you’re good to go. The organizers will be providing the internet connection, electricity , food, and drinks.
Participants will be given six hours to develop a web application based on the prescribed theme to be given on the event itself. At the end of the allotted time, the finished web apps will be presented to the panel of judges that consist of seasoned gurus in the fields of web application development and program management. Those who emerge victorious will win fantastic prizes!
