About

HexaHive is an annual hackathon organised by Uniphyd. a community of student developers at Parul University. We have a single goal as a community, to do great things for our careers and to do these things together or unified. A lot of people think Hackathons are hard and are only for experienced programmers, we want to change that. We want to get people excited about innovating and draw a diverse group of new hackers.

Themes

We have two main themes this year.

Student Hacks

What better problems to solve than your own? Students come from all over India and the world. As if being a student isn't hard enough some have to change cities or countries and have problems with food, accommodation, resources and even finding friends. Put together a hack to solve some of the biggest problems students face. Let's make learning fun again.

University Hacks

A lot of effort from universities and their staff goes into making students ready for their future as professionals. Times are changing and universities need to catch up! Put together a hack and solve some of the problems universities face or give a fresh approach to something outdated - this can be in management, entertainment, academics, research and even teaching

Can't think of anything? Don't worry, we have sample problem statements that will be available to you on the day of the Hackathon or you could check out our Sponsor Hacks.
We can’t wait to see what you build!
