My friend, Mayank Tripathi, is a second year Computer Science undergrad in DTU, New Delhi, and his major interests are android and web development.
We have been shortlisted for participation in the prestigious hackathon Hack-InOut. It's the largest hackathon held in India annually, and it's being held in Bangalore this year.
Basically, a hackathon is an event in which computer programmers and software developers (from college undergrads to those doing jobs) collaborate intensively on software projects and try to implement innovative ideas within 24 hours (default duration of a hackathon).
Although we got accepted to attend the hackathon, we are in a situation where we are unable to pay the travel expenses which is in our case 2 air tickets from Delhi to Bangalore, which amounts around 18000 INR (9000 INR per person for round trip) and that is something we can't afford as a whole on our own.
We are really passionate developers and regular hackathon attendees, with honourable awards and positions in past hackathons. This is a huge hackathon and it will help us gain more experience, and learn about new technologies from awesome developers and mentors there.
I hope we can raise the required money to attend the hackathon. Thanks in advance for supporting our developer dream of participating in a hackathon of such calibre.
