About the event

hackCBS 3.0, a legacy being carried forward by like-minded individuals aims to collaborate the intellects of programmers, designers, application developers, tech-geeks and newbies in the world of programming for the intensive development of a hack.
At hackCBS, we help you turn your ideas into reality by providing a comforting and welcoming enviornment. You’ll have all the freedom to create a product, learn new things, and to have hilariously funny moments with your friends. Moreover, we’ll offer you a chance to network with working professionals and hacker community leaders. You will never learn faster than you will at a hackathon.


If you haven’t participated in any hackathon before and if you’re looking out for the opportunity to do so, you’re in the right place. We welcome all newcomers and veterans alike. You are about to witness a series of events which will enlighten as well as enhance your skills. If you're an experienced hacker then you already must be knowing about hackCBS - India's largest student-run hackathon. Last year we witnessed a grand footfall of almost 1000 hackers from all over the country, fighting it all out to their position at the top while generating over 50,000 lines of code in the process of 24 hours, requiring more than 10,000 cups of coffee to fuel the developers’ brains. But this time it’s gonna be different, ‘coz this time it’s going to be even grander.
