What is HackVerse ?

HackVerse serves as a platform to encourage enthusiastic minds to brainstorm on solutions for challenging issues from all over India. The unified motive of gathering all like-minded hackers to our alma mater, is what led to the creation of the idea in NITK Surathkal, the first of its kind. We’ll provide a platform for innovations, where developers can test and showcase their potential to the best of their abilities. The hackathon will also have keynotes & workshops from executives from the industry.

The Institution

National Institute of Technology Karnataka (NITK) is one of the premier engineering institutions in the country. Situated near Mangalore along the coast of the Arabian Sea, NITK is home to some of the brightest young minds of the country engaged in a wide array of disciplines. With a vibrant and robust student body, NITK has been the launchpad for people with great ideas that have grown to be very successful ventures including Practo, Perpule, SaveMonk among others. This year, we celebrate our Diamond Jubilee. To commemorate 60 years of NITK, we aim to gather all like minded hackers to our own institute.

Hackverse started with an innovative, encouraging boost and the organizers maintained the whole through out the event. It encouraged the students to identify the existing social problems and find solutions through the selection of different tracks and work on it. It serves as a platform to excel ourselves and most importantly, interact with people from different regions across the country and their technical approaches. Overall i'd say, it had an enriching and once in a graduation time experience. Looking forward to many such events in the days to come.
