  • Not at all! This is a common misconception about hackathons and in actual fact, it’s the complete opposite. The environment at these events are designed specifically to encourage everyone to have fun and help each other. If you’re ever stuck on anything, go find a volunteer who might able to help and if not, they will almost certainly know who can.

  • Not a problem! It’s entirely irrelevant what your experience is going into a hackathon, it’s more about your interest in technology. Our hackathon is beginner-friendly. If you want to learn how to code outside of a hackathon, you should check out the following: Treehouse, Codecademy and the Major League Hacking blog to get started.

  • You might think your project isn’t impressive or it might not be finished so you don’t want to present it. You should present it anyway! Honestly, hackathons isn’t about being the best or being competitive. It’s all about having fun, making friends and learning how to become better at things you care about. Presenting your hack gives you a chance to be proud of what you’ve done, and you should be proud.

  • EconHacks hosts hacathon based on the theme of economy and issues faced by people to help create awareness about economics in the youth.

  • You can contact us on our email infobangalore@econhacks.org regarding any complaints, feedbacks and sugestions!
