Extentia Sets the Stage for X24.2017 – Season 3
Annual 24-hour ‘Build Marathon’ to be held September 15-16
Pune, India, September 4, 2017
X24.2017 returns to Extentia for the third consecutive year. An annual hackathon – X24 will take place on September 15-16 this year. The 24-hour event requires participants to develop technology-based solutions – from concept to pitch. Six teams will be presented with a set of challenge statements, and compete for a trophy. This years theme – ‘When Business Meets Digital Transformation’ will challenge Extentians to build cutting-edge technology solutions for real-world problems.
Last years event stayed true to the twists that mark X24. The first one came 3 days prior to the event – a wild card spot was opened, and new members joined the chosen teams. Extentia also minted ‘xCoins’, and introduced the concept of ‘The Marketplace’ – where Extentians purchased intellectual and hands on services by in-company experts. This service was available for a specified time, and allowed teams to improve their applications and products.
Like every year, X24 will be supported by several local establishments who will sponsor prizes for teams. The event is being promoted across social media with the hashtag ‘#hackathonX24’, along with a live web site feed that will broadcast the action as it happens.
“X24 presents interesting opportunities to Extentians for innovation and productive teamwork,” said Umeed Kothavala, CEO, Extentia. “There are quite a few events and changes planned to keep our teams engaged, and make X24 2017 bigger and better this year. We’re also delighted to have so many sponsors lined up already.”
