Frequently Asked Questions

What is the API Hackday about?

The API Hackday is a one day, 10-hour hackathon that challenges people to make something awesome. There are no restrictions on platform or language and there is no theme! The API Hackday is brought to you by SendGrid, Postman, and Exotel.

What happens at a hackathon?

A hackathon is an event where people from diverse backgrounds come together and use technology to transform ideas into reality. We believe that by bringing together developers and designers from across India and providing them the space to be creative, we can do amazing things - we can create magic. At a hackathon, people form a team around a problem or idea, and collaboratively create a unique solution - web app, mobile app, hardware product - from scratch.

What am I supposed to build?

You may build whatever you like! It could be something that helps the community or it could be something completely wacky and fun that’s a mash-up of different APIs. You can even come talk to any of us, or the mentors to get some ideas. You may create using software, hardware, or both. Remember, it's your hackathon, build whatever makes you happy -- whether it's something marketable or just something cool that you've always wanted to build.

Who can attend?

Everyone is welcome to apply and attend the API Hackday! You may be a computer scientist or an artist, a doctor or a lawyer, anyone and everyone interested in technology can attend our API Hackday. You should apply right away - due to space constraints we are limiting the number of participants to only sixty.

Is there a Registration Fee?

Absolutely not! The API Hackday is completely free. We’ll also provide you with free food, drinks, and awesome merchandise.

What is the maximum team size?

You may have up to four people on a team. If you don't have a team, don't worry - we’ll have a fun team-forming session at the beginning. You’re also welcome to hack individually!

What should I bring?

You should bring a Valid ID, Laptop, Phone, Chargers, and enthusiasm to build something awesome! If you’re building something with hardware, we kindly request you to bring your own hardware - we would not be providing hardware at the hackday.

Do I need a team or idea to sign up?

No! We recommend registering with friends but there will be opportunities to brainstorm and meet other participants.

What if I'm not from Bangalore?

No problem! We are providing travel reimbursement (train and bus) to each and every participant that would be attending our hackday.
