The largest hackathon yet in the world's largest democracy.

HackIndia is India's largest hackathon yet, and it's bringing together an amalgamation of passionate developers, designers, and entrepreneurs. Hosted by Bangalore's PES University, and sponsored by GitHub and Pebble among other tech companies, HackIndia aims to bring the hacking culture to India.

Make anything that you like - as long as it's from scratch - in the 24-hour hackathon: the possibilities are endless. We're open to all kinds of projects: India is the last place where one would not expect to see diversity!
