Why You Need To Code2Create?

When was the last time a problem tinkled your mind and didn’t let you sleep? When was the last time you were on the edge with caffeine, racing to get the solution right? Been a while, hasn’t it?

ACM VIT is here to mix things up and get you high on coding.

We are back with the second edition of our premium and buzzing Hackathon – Code2Create (C2C). A 36-hour adrenaline-driven hack, aimed at bringing out the best in developers and coders. C2C 2018 will feature tracks such as Fintech, Healthcare, AR/VR and sustainable energy, and prizes worth 50 lacs to be bagged. But why should you think about Code2Create?

 

Why a Hackathon?

A platform

College life and classes can be monotonous sometimes, especially for those who have a thirst to create something new and present it to the world to make a difference. C2C is a great platform to materialize your visions to create something which makes a difference. For many, hackathons are where their talents are recognized. For others, it’s where the seeds of inspiration and new interests are sown. We promise you will fall under both these categories at C2C.

A push

The highly productive and competitive environment with the mentors will push you to exceed your limits. It will make you brainstorm and come up with novel solutions. Prepare to be stunned by your own mind.

An insight into the industry

A hackathon is one of the first experiences for students when it comes to industrial environments. It’s a window to see and experiment with your future work and working style. C2C will host speakers from the industry to ensure you have a holistic view when you leave.

It Counts

Certificates and the experience count for a lot in the future. They give you an edge over your competition when the HRs visit.

Cool Prizes

Cloud credits, schwag, t-shirts, cash prizes – name it and we have it to offer.

But why put faith in ACM VIT and Code2Create?

Code2Create 2017, one of the biggest hackathons witnessed by VIT was a resounding success both in terms of participation and impact. ACM VIT hosted 300+ participants last year, many of whom were external participants.  The problem statements were based on four areas of concern.

We had cash prizes up to 30k for the top three teams. A lot of goodies including stickers, pens, t-shirts, etc. were distributed amongst the participants throughout the event. To keep up the spirit of the participants, we planned and conducted some fun activities. We had ACM India President as the Chief Guest for the event. Also, we had the CEOs of Tricentis and Transitus to add to the charm of the event. Code2Create was a giant success and one of the best events conducted by ACM VIT as it witnessed an influx of creative ideas and a very positive feedback.
