Extentia Gets Set to Host Season 4 of its X24 Hackathon
This year’s theme is D.I.E – Data, Intelligence, and Experience
Pune, India, August 16, 2018
Extentia’s annual hackathon returns with a D.I.E. HARD theme in Season 4. The 24-hour event will take place on August 24-25 and require participants to develop technology-based solutions – from concept to pitch. Six teams comprising of coders, designers, and sales representatives will compete to solve a set of challenge statements. The theme for this year – D.I.E. – focuses on Data, Intelligence, and Experience tasking the teams to develop cutting-edge technology solutions for real-world problems.
X24 Season 3 was full of twists as challenge statements were revealed two days prior to the event and teams could pick their own statements. They were even given the liberty to exchange the challenge statements till 11 am on the day of the event. The Marketplace returned with free intellectual and hands-on services and allowed the participation of flexible members. This service enabled participants to gain some insights and produce well-rounded applications.
Like every year, local establishments will support X24 and sponsor prizes for the teams this season. The hashtags ‘#hackathonX24’ and ‘#X24diehard’ are being used to promote the event across social media. There is also a live website feed that will broadcast the action leading up to the event and as it unfolds on the day.
“X24 challenges Extentians to create innovative workable solutions in 24-hours and encourages productive teamwork,” said Umeed Kothavala, CEO, Extentia. “This year’s event is centered on Data, Intelligence, and Experience with different twists and turns to keep the teams engaged. With new challenges in store, X24 2018 is poised to be bigger and better this year. We’re also delighted to have so many sponsors lined up already.”
X24 2018 was covered by these publications.
