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.


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 up for the lost opportunities for women by endorsing them in tech through our various programmes.

Hack In The North 2.0 had a direct entry to any and all girls’ teams and individual entries while the best team received special prizes and swags. In the fifth edition of Hack In The North, we took it a step further and reserved 15% of the seats for female participants. Hack In The North 4.0 witnessed a special monetary prize of Rs. 5000 to the best performing all girls' team.

The team size can range from 2 to 4 members

No, there is no such provision. Selection of a team is done considering all it's members. However the team members can apply as individuals and then form a team after selection.

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. Allahabad Airport is 20 minutes away from IIIT Allahabad.

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.

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!

Yes, we will provide reimbursements on your travel expenses. Expect at least an amount equal to the sleeper ticket in non premium trains. The exact amount will be finalized at the end.
