Krakathon 2018: the coding event not to be missed in October

Don’t miss the new edition of Krakathon on October 20 and 21, 2018, at Vivea Business Park. This third hackathon already has 100 participants, in 18 teams. There are currently 20 places max. Hurry if you want to participate in the 2018 edition!

 

 

The Kraka what?

The Krakathon is a bit like a Hackathon but with a Kraken and a treasure! During 24 hours, teams will combine code and non-stop fun. The goal is to solve as many technical challenges as possible in the shortest time! Indeed, each challenge allows to win points. The team that gets the most will win the treasure…well the competition!

How does the Krakathon work?

The teams are made up of 4 to 6 developers. This competition was designed for devs by devs! Who can participate? Developers of all languages, sys admin and other coders as well as hackers of all kinds. To put it simply, this competition is open to anyone with programming skills.

 

What’s in it for me?

The Krakathon is an opportunity to code, to have fun and to win a lot of money! In 2016, in the very first edition, Team 42 posted 8,450 points and won the treasure worth RS 50,000. Last year, it was the Force Coders who walked away with the RS 60,000 loot. Who will be the winning team in the 2018 edition? Only one month left to wait to discover it.

24 hours of non-stop code (and a lot of fun too)

To get on board and take on the Kraken, you don’t need to know any particular language; this is not a java, ruby, python, C or php competition. Just bring your PC and your good mood. Wifi, electricity and even customised jerseys in each team’s colours are provided. The brave pirates will also be fed, hydrated and entertained throughout the competition.
