20th March - 4th April
From broken coffee machines to the monotony of sitting for long hours at a stretch, this paradigm shift to online hackathons rids you of many such hiccups that you normally face in an offline experience. Going virtual empowers you to create revolutionary hacks at the comfort of your sofa!
No more chaotic working table. No more random snacks on the floor. Now you can just lock yourself in your room and get the work done!
No more late night struggles. No more burnouts. Now, not just you can recharge your mind and body but also sleep on your ideas and take it to the next level.
No more random sticky notes. No more flip chats. Now you can get anyone from anywhere on your team and collaborate effectively in your own solitary virtual space.

Get exposed to actual problems to work on. Opportunity to solve problems fast, and push yourself beyond your comfort zone. Enhance your ability to work under pressure and acquire new technical skills, the exposure to interact with smart people improving your soft skills. Master the art of pitching project ideas like a pro.
Ideate with your team. Strategize with the utmost precision. Develop with your tools of choice and bring your hacks to life! If there was a right time to get serious on that handy idea you thought of in the shower, this is it! Ideas may look small in our heads, but nobody really knows their impact until and unless they manifest into reality.
Too shy to approach someone physically? The virtual experience lets you connect with sharp and like-minded people in your comfort zone. Build a circle that pushes you to grow. Network with masters of their crafts and learn from them. Or simply find peers on the same career roadmap. The possibilities are endless!
Hackathons are great, until they are not! With unguided, unclear direction, hackathons can be bloated with vaporware. When we don’t know the problem that we’re trying to solve, we might just build something that no one never wanted.
So you've got ideas? Like ... a lot of 'em? There are way too many of us with ideas but too little time. If you're that person then our hackers at #UtkalHacks might just build those ideas into a real product.
No, not at all. We know hackers love prizes and swags! But sometimes useless prizes are a great turnoff for the people who hack out of passion. This year, we are focusing more on providing valuable prizes that are useful to everyone in the long run. And we’ve got a bunch of cool but useful ones in this year’s edition.
