The hackathon’s main focus was to solve problems related to tourism, education and health sector of Nepal.
Student Dev Hack was supported by Major League Hacking (MLH) and it was part of Local Hack Day Build.The event was also supported by Microsoft and Github.
I started the session by welcoming the participants, judges and speakers. There were 40 participants from 10 different groups. I spoke about the Local Hack Day and introduced participants about the rules and regulations of the hackathon. I gave a talk about the Microsoft Cognitive Services and shared the Azure Credit worth $100 which was provided by Microsoft.Then participants started working on defining the problem and designing their solutions.
