Since 2007, YDN has been hosting amazing Hack Days in India. The first five open hack events in India have been held in Bangalore, and we’ll be back in Bangalore later this year. This is our first open hack event in Hyderabad, and we expect this one will also embody the passion, energy and spirit of our previous events in India.

The event is shaping up to be a great one. Become familiar with YQL, Mojito and YDN with some stellar speakers from across Yahoo! Learn about Yahoo! BOSS & Geo services from Pradeep Banavara. Take a gander at YUI’s Pure CSS with Sudar Muthu. Get acquainted with the Flickr API during a talk by Amit Kumar. We’ve invited a number of tech companies to come show off their technologies and APIs as well, so come prepared to learn!

Demand for our previous India open hack events has consistently been high. For each event, we typically see overwhelming demand, with over 4,000 hackers, both developers and designers, applying. The response and applications for this event already appears to be just as strong. Because of the large demand for the event, the application process is highly competitive. For this reason, this year we’ve instituted a coding challenge as a part of the application process.
