About Event

Version β: Possibly India’s biggest hackathon in the near future. Version β stands for a cause; To eliminate rote learning from the academic lives and inculcating spirits of innovation and experimentation among the youth. Hackathons are yet to become the part of the regular norms in the fast developing nation, hence, few tech-enthusiasts from ISTE Students' Chapter MANIT took the charge to do so. With enterprises lining up for bare talents who can innovate and create something of their own, all that the students need is a podium to showcase their talents. With a vast pool of talented individuals shortlisted by a rigorous selection procedure, Version β holds the key to overall development in the social and technical aspects of an individual.

Version Beta 2018



Chubby and cute, this is Curly the panda. Always perceived as lazy and tired, it was tough for curly to get a job in the most competitive profession, that of a software engineer. Stereotypes and judgemental thinking of others around him told him he could never be what he wanted to be. Some said he didn't have the brains, and should stick to making dimsums, and some laughed saying he'd never be able to type more than a line of code. But Curly succeeded nonetheless with sheer labor and passion. His reply to everyone who called him inadequate was that just like thousands of lines of code are rendered useless if the curly brace isn't placed at the end, similarly, simple intelligence is rendered useless without hard work. Our loved mascot Curly stands for unrelenting hard work and always being a strong believer in our own goals and dreams, even if it seems as if the world is against us.
