Why Hack Jaipur?

Jaipur has been always the mother of traditional communities even before the civilizations started.

HackJaipur follows the same culture and seeks for different solutions to various issues the tradition face from time to time. HackJaipur represents the cultural integrity and bond of our tradition.

We didn't start HackJaipur to simply conduct a Hackathon but to make people aware of our community's issues and solutions that exist currently.

  • HackJaipur is an Online Hackathon, which means it provides you the opportunity to participate directly from your Home, no fuss of going here and there.

  • Ample Goodies and Swags for every participant.

  • Prizes worth 60,000 INR.

  • You will learn how to work remotely and handle multiple things. Perhaps, a golden opportunity to connect with like-minded participants.

Tracks

For HackJaipur, your project need not be focused on solely one track, it could be an amalgamation of several tracks. These tracks have been chosen on the basis of the problems we all are facing in community building, and how technology can be utilized in such cases.

  1. Diversity: Diversity means the inclusion of all individuals as technology does not discriminate. How can technology help to increase diversity and maintain it?
  2. Remotely Working: As work from home is becoming is a widespread culture, technology can make the process easier. Any project that makes such an effort will fall into this category.
  3. Tech and Health: Technology can create sustainable and effective relations between a healthcare professional and the patient. It can also provide a cheaper, faster, and more beneficial solutions to prevent and battle illnesses.
