The fifth annual Open Hack India will take place this weekend in Bangalore. In one of our biggest hackdays yet, 700 hackers from 20 Indian states will embark upon a 36 hour overnight hackathon.
We're currently in the process of building the set, which will transform the Grand Ball Room at the Sheraton Bangalore into a hackers palace.
To manage the massive number of hacks expected, we're running pre-judging rounds where hackers will compete in categories to win a place in the final, where the top 40 hacks will be presented to the whole audience and judging panel.
Our esteemed judging panel consists of senior executives from Yahoo! and special guest judges including Sameer Brij Verma from Nexus Venture partners, and Mukund Mohan, a successful serial entrepreneur.
Congratulations if you managed to secure a place at the event. I'm afraid that there are no places left for those who have not. This event fills up very quickly.
Oh, and we brought the hackday robots back to life for this special occasion!
