    Thanks Shishir for organizing such a great event , and spacial thanks to the Synerzip for providing all the facility, that was really an awesome experience, and the best part is you can build up your technical network with people from IT field.

    This was one of the best tech events I've attended. Got very useful insights from Shishir. It's a great experience to sit 24 hours and building something that works and is badly needed. Sincerest thanks to GDG Pune for organizing this event.

  • Pratik L.

    To be honest, we dint knew anything about Android, had not even set it up on our machines! We came to the hackathon with a clear intention of learning Android programming by doing it all on our own and we are glad that we could build a basic working app with the help of hundreds of Google searches! :-P Also, great work by the organisers! Looking forward to many such events. Happy Coding! :-)

  • Tri C.

    Are we going to develop apps/website etc only for Android or other platforms as well like ios / windows ??

    January 25, 2013

  • Manish

    Some basic queries :

    (1) What about Lunch/dinner? Can we go out to hog? I don't want to end up eating pizaa & carbonated drinks! (2) I love coding very much (been doing it for 13+ years now) and comfortable coding with Android SDK, but not sure I can stay awake for 2 4hours without sleep. Can I sleep for 6- hours maybe? Would appreciate if one of the organizers (@Shishir Vaidya or @Rohit maybe) could add their inputs about this. Looking forward to doing this.

    TIA,
    - Manish

    • Shishir V.

      Manish, We have arranged for food at the venue. Two meals, two breakfasts, evening brunch and night snacks will be provided at the venue for free. This is proper meal. Menu is decided keeping the event pattern in mind. Not too heavy, filling but simple. We have arranged for "Sleepy Corner" where you can go and take a nap. Happy ? :)

      4 · January 25, 2013

    • Manish

      Yeah. Super happy....Thanks for such meticulous arrangements. See you tomorrow. :-)

    I want to know whether it will be taught how to develop webApps or we need to do it on our own ?

    January 25, 2013

    • Virendra R.

      really??

      January 25, 2013

    • Shishir V.

      Yes at the same time since there are a few students participating in the event, we will have senior co organizers helping them a little. Please note, this is NOT a training session. This is a Coding session.

    i wana attend it

    January 23, 2013

  • Kshitiz A.

    After the horrible rape incident in Delhi, I am thinking to develop a mobile app which can alert victim's situation and location to near by police stations by just click of a button, no dialing or entering any info. But I need mobile developers for that...can anyone join me for this?

    3 · January 4, 2013

    • Kshitiz A.

      There are apps in the market like this one where alerts are send to contacts provided by the user. But what I am thinking (I know a bit challenging) is to alert to police station or hospitals nearest to victim's location of incident. Database has to be managed but once done..the app will be highly useful.

    hey i m student of engineering .can i attend this. i dont hav enough knowledge of hacking. but i m intrestd in hacking

    1 · January 20, 2013

    • Jaydeep

      I dont know what you mean here by 'hacking'. I have often seen students taking it wrong way. At this hacknight we are going to build something. May be a web app, mobile app which solves a problem. And as a student you SHOULD attend such events wherein you get to sit with professionals and experienced programmers and learn how to code well and much more.

      6 · January 20, 2013

  • pravin v.

    I would like to know it is possible this event provides all attendees a certificate which proves that we attended and worked on xyz app/website.

      Good Point. Shishir will respond

    Why event moved from this weekend to 26th Jan 2013 weekend...
    This is not good we had planned according to this weekend :(

    January 14, 2013

    • virendra

      But earlier it was told 18 Jan so we planned according to that one ...

      January 14, 2013

    • Rohit G.

      Hi Virenda, I appreciate your willingness and enthusiasm to become part of this. I hate to see you unable to attend the above event. We had issues with the earlier venue and the current venue is already booked for 18th Jan. As much as we would like to not shuffle events, at times things are very much out of our control. My apologies for this pain to you and others. I sincerely hope you and other make it to this and future hackathons. And Again, I would like to thank you all for your support in making this tech community a success. Cheers, Rohit

    Jitesh, what do you want to build with NodeJS?

    January 9, 2013

    • Jitesh D.

      Jaydeep, I want to build some kind of client-server app which requires a back-end

      January 10, 2013

  • Jitesh D.

    Any one with Node.js (server) background...so that we can team up to build an android app..

    January 9, 2013

  • Sudarshan

    Will be there.....!!

    January 7, 2013

  • Vinit K.

    Looking forward to some good time!

    January 6, 2013

  • Shishir V.

    Dear All, Looking at the amazing response we have got for the hackathon, we had to reschedule the entire event for 2 reasons. 1. Since No of participants is pretty large, we need more than 20 MBPS wifi connectivity. And we had some operational issues at MITCOE venue. 2. Sufficient No of electricity point is another requirement that was another operational issue in a classroom / conf hall set up. hence we have changed the venue.
    Lets make this hackathon and awesome event...

    5 · January 4, 2013

  • Tri C.

    @Shishir is there any chances of keeping this event only during weekend like starting sat early morning ending sunday morning ? or starting on sat evening and ending on suday night ?

    December 19, 2012

    • virendra

      Yes please dont keep on friday evening ... keep in saturday morning... and is there any winning certificates or anything .. Thankyou

      January 2, 2013

    • Shishir V.

      Yes we are making change in the schedule. As suggested and agreed by college it will start from Saturday morning to Sunday Morning. :) Happy?

  • Kshitiz A.

    I am not able to get ticket from Print ticket link...

    January 2, 2013

    • Shishir V.

      Which link you talking about. We dont have any ticket link shared with the members. You simply need to RSVP to attend the event.

      1 · January 2, 2013

  • Amrit M.

    how many members one team can have?

    January 2, 2013

    • Shishir V.

      One can participate as an individual OR max a group of 4 in each team.

      January 2, 2013

  • virendra

    Are people from Google gonna judge the app ? Is this competition organised by Google specifically ? What will participants get ? what is last date of entry ? Any registration fee ?

    January 2, 2013

    • Shishir V.

      No. We will have internal judges who will judge the work. The event is sponsored by Google. Google Developer Group is a community that is supported by Google for various tech and educational events. There is no registration fees.

      January 2, 2013

  • Shishir V.

    Dear All,

    We would like to keep multiple themes for the Hackathon. An App / website can be created in any open source technology.

    Participants can have their own theme. An app / website should be completed within 24 hours.

    Though this is not a competition, we will recognize 3 best products (An app / Website / Idea).Some of the Themes we would like you to work on are:

    1. Education to All

    2. Right To Information (RTI)

    3. How can we make cities safer to live.

    4. Public Transportation

    More themes will be added. You can add more themes and share with other members.

    Cheers.

    Shishir

    GDG Pune


    PS: Since this is going to be an overnight event, we would like to make it a lot more lively for the participants, Kindly post your fav music tracks (Min 2 Max 5) and we will create a playlist that will be played during the event. Suggestions from you all are most welcome.

      Magnetic - Nine Inch Nails.Great track for hackathons. ;)

      January 2, 2013

  • Tri C.

    According to me there will be 2 types of people participating this hackathon. 1st Students 2nd professionals. So there will be a teams of these 2 type of people. I would suggest professionals to mix up with students team so that they will get proper guidance in what ever project they will be doing during this hackathon. @Shishir I think there should be a theme or a topic like related to that all the teams will start writing codes and develop a new working protocol of that particular theme or topic. For example Lets see we all decide to develop a Mobile app, (Android / iphone / windows ) and this app will be based on that particular theme or topic.

    December 19, 2012

    • Tri C.

      In addition - It wont be just a mobile app but, it could be anything like a - website or an application or just an idea. It should have some common topic or theme on which we all will start working ?

      December 19, 2012

    • Shishir V.

      Yes Point noted. Paticipants need not restrict to an App but can go ahead and develop whatever they want to.

      1 · December 23, 2012

  • Kshitiz A.

    Who will be providing us the themes? Can we make our own?

    December 23, 2012

    • Shishir V.

      Yes. We can accommodate multiple themes so that people have more choice. Pls post themes you can think of on meetup page.

      December 23, 2012

  • Sushant

    @Tri : yes you are right, It would be better if event will start on saturday morning.
    @Shishir: please consider this point.

    December 20, 2012

  • roshan

    Education for all that'll be good. @sushant: don't divide it according to technologies or at least have bigger domain of them. @ shishir : you have declared the date and time of the event and you don't have theme fixed , any explanation? And do decide your theme and technologies ASAP so that you can pull more audience.

    December 19, 2012

    • Shishir V.

      Dear Roshan, GDG is a community driven initiative wherein I simply act as an evangelist. GDG belongs to all the community members and participation, suggestions, ideas are most welcome from anybody. Typically Hackathons need not have any theme however to have more focused contribution and efforts I felt having one or multiple open themes will help participants in deciding what to develop. At the same time there is no hard and fast rule that one should participate only if s/he is expert in a particular technology.

      1 · December 19, 2012

  • Sushant

    I think you can divide Hackathon in 3 different technologies -
    HTML 5 , Ruby on rails and Node.js.

    1 · December 18, 2012

  • Shishir V.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hackathon

    Lets have a theme for this Hackathon guys... any suggestions?

    What change you want to bring in society with the power of Technology?

    Education for all? Social justice? Safety for women and children? Well managed cities?
