Hackathons are these programming events where a group of passionate coders gathers to work on ideas and solutions. If resolutions created on these events are good enough, they get funded to become a substantial project which in return solves different real problems. For the past recent years, we have seen the trend of hackathon taking place in Nepal and many of them have resulted in fruitful products. Continuing the trend, Yakamoz Institute of Technology has initiated a hackathon with the theme “Hack for Good.”

What is Hack for Good?

Hack for Good

Hack for Good is directed towards creating technological solutions for real social challenges. Any programming languages or tools can be used as long as it moves you towards your desired solution. These solutions can take shape in the form of Website, mobile apps, and even robots. You don’t need to build a complete app but rather just a demo or prototype that reflects your idea. The best ideas will be backed up by the sponsors or the institute to turn it into a real product which means your ideas and work will be helping people for real!
