Extentia Gears Up to Host Season 5 of its Premier Hackathon – X24
This year’s theme is SMARTscape technologies
Pune, India, September 13, 2019
X24 returns with a bang with this season focusing on SMART technologies. The 24-hour hackathon will take place from September 19 -- 20 and will feature the best, the brightest, and the most creative minds in the Extentia family in a pulsating, thrill a minute race against the clock to create solutions all the way from concept to pitch. Six teams made up of a precise combination of coders, designers, and sales representatives will come together to solve a set of challenge statements that will push their abilities to the very limit. The theme for this year is SMARTscape technologies and their application towards benefiting and improving the locales that we inhabit.
X24 Season 4 was nothing short a rollercoaster ride with its D.I.E HARD (Data, Intelligence, and Experience) theme leaving an indelible mark on all of the participants. There was excitement, drama, despair, and the ecstasy of those all too fleeting eureka moments with no team willing to cede an inch in their pursuit of total victory.
As with every year, an assortment of local establishments will support X24 and sponsor prizes for the teams across the season. The hashtags ‘#hackathonX24’ and ‘#SmartScape’ 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 allows the Extentia family to not only channel the full extent of their technical and creative capabilities but also provides them with a simulated environment in which they are able to experiment with potentially ground-breaking solutions," said Umeed Kothavala, CEO, Extentia. "We always like to keep the teams on their toes and this year’s SMARTscape theme will have plenty of tricky corners to navigate in terms of the intricacies of our challenge statements. Attention to detail, innovativeness, and an ability to improvise will be of paramount importance. Of course, with greater risk comes greater reward and I’m confident that everyone participating will rise to the challenge."
