Hackathons are a great way to give back to the community. Mentoring beginners is always helpful for them and rewarding for us. We’re going to have mentors from a number of different organizations present at the venue. Whenever you’re stuck on a problem or need suggestions they'll always be within a hand’s reach.

  • How does the application process work?

    We’re looking for people who "do"! Folks who are passionate enough to work on crazy world-changing ideas. Tell us what makes you apply to Wittyhacks, what excites you, accomplishments you are proud of and whatever else you think can strengthen your chances of acceptance. We’ll get to know more about your abilities from the past projects, GitHub profile, participation/awards in other hackathons.

  • Can we apply as a team?

    Yes! This hackathon is strictly a team competition. We believe that you’re stronger as a team than you are apart. Teams must have at least 3 members and at most 4 members.

  • What if I don’t have a team or an idea?

    Not to worry, most people don’t! We’ll have team formation and ideation events geared towards helping you find people to work with. You can join our Facebook Group to find potential teammates before you register.

  • What shouldn’t I bring?

    Weapons of any kind, drugs, or alcohol. If you’re not sure whether something will be okay, please ask ahead of time!

  • What about hardware?

    If you have specific hardware in mind, bring it with you. We will be doing our best to lend hardware at the event and enable you to work on your dream hack. We’ll put out a list closer to the event so you can see what’s available.

  • I don’t want to hack, can I still get involved?

    You can help us by spreading the word about WittyHacks to your friends and acquaintances. If you are someone with specialized technical skills, then reach out to us via email to become a mentor. If your company is interested in becoming a sponsor, Fill up the Sponsorship form.

  • When will applications close?

    The application portal will be closed on December 31st at 11:59pm IST. We evaluate applications on a rolling basis and acceptances will be sent every weekend via email. The sooner you apply, the better chances you have of acceptance. Once accepted, you’ll have five days to confirm your attendance.

  • How much does it cost?

    Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Nothing. Admission to Wittyhacks is completely free, thanks to our sponsors! We'll provide you with a weekend's worth of schwag, meals, drinks, snacks and a place to crash when you need a break from coding.

  • How big can a team be?

    You can form teams of up to 4 people. Most teams aim to have a mix of people with both design and developer skills.

  • Once I am accepted, what do I need to bring?

    A valid government issued photo ID, laptop, phone, chargers, any sleeping equipment you might want (we'll be providing mattresses) and a geeky t-shirt!
