With 200+ entries for the Registration form so far, our phones have been ringing constantly with doubts and questions about the upcoming Appointy Hackathon.
So I thought I’d put together this little FAQ post to help you get everything right about the event next weekend.
All about the Hackathon
How long will it last?
Saying that it’ll last for 24 hours will be wrong.
It can last for as long as you want, but the maximum time given to you is 24 hours. Yes. That’s more correct.
You can come and leave the event venue as per your will. You can finish it in an hour and leave or you can take the entire day to brainstorm and work.
For the first one hour, a mentor will give a live demo by creating something from scratch using the same tools that’ll be provided to you.
What platforms to use?
The platforms that you need to work on will be announced a week before the event. You can prep yourself for seven days and even carry syntax cheat sheets with you on the day of the event. Just like in an open book test.
Who Can Participate?
All those currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in MANIT, any Bachelor’s degree, are welcome. If you can code, you’re in!
Get onboard for 24-hours of adrenaline charged, mind-twisting coding tasks at our luxurious office, with a chance to interact and learn with our badass tech professionals, to satiate the coder in you.
Also, there’s delicious, free food to satiate the, well, college student in you. 😉

An Internship at Appointy
All the candidates who get shortlisted get a chance to be a part of Appointy’s awesome Intern program. The internship is a great learning opportunity and a loooootttt of fun!
