About the event

hackCBS 2.0, a legacy being carried forward by students of SSCBS aims to collaborate the intellects of programmers, designers, application developers, tech-geeks and newbies in the world of programming for the intensive development of a hack. At hackCBS 2.0, we want to help you turn your ideas into reality. These ideas can generally be in the form of websites, applications, projects or posters. You’ll have all the freedom to create a product, learn new techniques for your future, or just have fun working on a project with friends. Moreover, we’ll offer you a chance to network with other creators & professionals. You will never learn faster than you will at a hackathon.From basic app building to making your own IoT device, hackCBS 2.0 will have it all.

If you haven’t participated in any hackathon before and if you’re looking out for the opportunity to do so, you’re in the right place. We welcome all newcomers and veterans alike. You are about to witness a series of events which will enlighten as well as enhance your CS skills. Our previous edition hackCBS witnessed a grand footfall of over 100 teams, fighting it all out to their position at the top while generating over 15,000 lines of code in the process of 24 hours, requiring more than 3000 cups of coffee to fuel the developers’ brains (Coffee’s on the house). But this time it’s gonna be different, ‘coz this time it’s going to be even grander.

hackCBS happen


How was hackCBS 1.0?

hackCBS 1.0 was successfully held at SSCBS Campus, New Delhi in collaboration with Adobe, Wikipedia, Lucideus,Linux Foundation, Jenkins and many more. There was an overwhelming no. of applications for the hackathon, out of which about 450 developers were selected. hackCBS 1.0 broke all the records set by other conventional hackathons while being the 1st ever hackathon to be ever conducted in Delhi University.

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon can be best described as an “invention marathon”, or in simple words hackathons are about bringing your crazy ideas to reality. It’s an event where any tech-enthusiast, regardless of their individual field can come & participate to learn, build & share their creations over the course of a weekend, in a relaxed & productive environment. Hackathons are simply a venue for self-expression & creativity, where people come together & transform their thoughts into reality, through technology.

How big a team can be?

The maximum team size is four and lone rangers are also welcome. Participants selected on an individual basis and can team up on the spot as well.

Who all can participate?

This is a student hackathon and only students are allowed to participate. You’ll be required to verify at the event by showing your student ID card.

Do I need to have any specific qualifications to be a participant for the hackathon?

If you love to code, you are more than welcome to participate in the hackathon. Though we may screen applications to maintain high standards.

I am a newbie, can I hack?

Of course you can! We at hackCBS ensure that no one is left behind during the hacking, thanks to our mentors and volunteers who help us achieve the same. We make sure that you learn the best you can alongside having fun and experiencing what it feels to belong to a community.

Can I start working on my hack before the event?

No. In the interest of fairness, students should not be working on their projects before hackCBS begins and we do not allow participants to work on pre-existing projects. However, you can familiarize yourself with all the tools and technologies you intend to use beforehand.

What to bring to the hackathon?

Please bring a valid university ID (or any student ID if in high school), a computer (preferably a laptop), chargers, and any hardware you will use for your hack. Please bring your own extensions although we'll have them available on minimum rent charges. No firearms, weapons, alcohol, or illegal drugs are allowed on campus.

What is the shortlisting procedure?

Based on the info provided in the registration form and a telephonic interview (if required), teams will be shortlisted for the hackathon.

Does hackCBS helps with travel reimbursement?

Yes, definitely we do to the brightest minds but on case to case basis (keeping in mind all the other constraints). If eligible you'll be informed about this over mail following the Hackathon.

Does hackCBS provides Internet facility during hackathon?

You're advised to bring your own broadband/hotspot device as we can arrange for atmost one connection per team.
