What is Hack In The North?
Hack In The North is the collaboration of programmers, designers and inventors to code, design and build innovative solutions that tackle real world problems.

We provide a venue for self-expression and creativity through technology.

It doesn't matter if someone is still making their first app or their 100th one. There are a lot of things to learn.

The only constraint is time.
Commitment
At Hack In The North, we create an environment that brings developers together irrespective of their gender, race, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background or ethnicity.

Ever since its inception, over the years, we have strived to make sure that women get a chance to showcase their experience with all fairness.

Hack In The North 2.0 had a direct entry to any and all girls’ teams and individual entries. The best performing girls’ team received special prizes and swags In Hack In The North 3.0, We took it a step further and reserved 20% of the seats for female participants.

Acceptances are rolled out individually. If more than 50% of the team is individually selected, the entire of the team gets selected. If not, please contact us immediately so that we can review your team again.

Unfinished or unimpressive (so you think) projects should be presented anyway! Presenting your hack gives you a chance to be proud of what you’ve done, and a constructive perspective of where you should be headed next.

Allahabad is well connected to all major cities of India by train. The airport at Allahabad has a daily flight to Delhi. Varansi International Airport is a 3 hour drive from Allahabad while Lucknow International Airport is 5 hours away.

Not to worry, most people don’t! We’ll have team formation and ideation events geared towards helping you find people to work with.

Then we're so glad HINT will be your first ever! It’s helpful to have some programming or technical experience, but it’s not a requirement. We’ll have talks, mentors and workshops to help you with your project.

HINT has always been a huge supporter of gender equality and empowerment. We've treasured swag exclusively for girls to promote and encourage their participation. Gotta grab em' all girls!

No. In the interest of fairness, students should not be working on their projects before Hack in the North 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!

We can’t guarantee reimbursements for everyone, but we don’t want money to keep you from experiencing HINT. You’ll get a reimbursement amount along with your invitation. Let us know if you still need help making your way to Allahabad and we’ll see what we can do.
