Most people have their ‘wish list’ of projects they would love to work on. Often aspiring for creating products with a potential to have a widespread impact,but are unable to develop them due to a variety of reasons. LNMHacks 2.0 is a chance to scratch this itch free from the usual constraints and distractions by developing something out of nowhere in 24 hours.
What is LNMHacks ?
LNMHacks is a one stop platform that brings together developers, designers and thinkers. It encourages the idea of converting into reality the cherry picked ideas from the unstoppable and random stream of thoughts in mind. Making things, breaking conventions and re-working upon them with an innovative mind is what has produced the best of products.
One can sum up the philosophy of LNMHacks in these three words
“ PONDER-PICK-PRODUCE ”
Looking Back at LNMHacks 1.0
LNMHacks 1.0 was a phenomenal success in its year of inception itself. The first edition was held from 22nd October 2016 to 23rd October 2016 at The LNM Institute of Information Technology, Jaipur.
It witnessed an enthusiastic participation and was well received because of its innovative concept. With 650+ participants in the elimination round and 150+ participants in the on-site Hackathon, LNMHacks 1.0 concluded with smile on everyone’s face. A few relevant workshops were conducted to assist the participants in the later stages of Hackathon.
LNMHacks 2.0 : Revised | Revamped
LNMHacks 2.0 is all set to be a manifold times amplified version of LNMHacks 1.0. In 1.0 there were three tracks — Fintech, IoT and Retail. For 2.0, there are six tracks, with EdTech, Computer Vision and Machine Learning being introduced this year. New tracks make the LNMHacks platform more versatile and feasible for a larger crowd.
