“People who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world are the ones who do” – Steve Jobs
For thirty six hours of core programming sessions, starting from 11th May, 2018 to 14th May, 2018, that is exactly the attitude a determined assemblage will embrace. With Telenor Pakistan’s first ever Hackathon, innovation, hard work and determination will open the doors to a multitude of avenues for university students, graduates and professionals.
Telenor Pakistan is inviting dreamers from all walks of life to come together and tackle problems of the future.
Telenor Pakistan Hackathon 2018
To kick things off, Telenor Pakistan has themed the event after its ‘Responsible Business’ initiative and is encouraging participants to submit problem statements that fall under one, or overlap between many of the UNDP’s Sustainable Development Goals.
More details on the goals can be found here: http://www.undp.org/content/undp/en/home/sustainable-development-goals.html
Once the problem statement has been submitted, shortlisted teams will be invited to Telenor’s 345 Campus to charge up the atmosphere, translate their solutions to code for 36 hours (including opening and closing ceremonies) and make their ideas see the light of day.
