Hackathons are a great way to give back to the community. Mentoring beginners is always helpful for them and rewarding for us. We’re going to have mentors from a number of different organizations present at the venue. Whenever you’re stuck on a problem or need suggestions they'll always be within a hand’s reach.

This year we are inviting not just students but everyone to build on ideas of their choice. Watching software materialize from pure thought, part by part is the closest to experiencing magic we have ever got to. And we’re excited to see that magic happen all over again!

At InOut, we strive to bring together developers to participate in the hackathon irrespective of gender, race, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background or ethnicity. We usually try to keep things simple. Read our FAQs to phase out ambiguity.

  • Who can participate?

    Everyone is welcome to apply, be it students, professionals or turing-test certified androids. If you are under 18 years of age, we’ll need a parental consent form.

  • How does the application process work?

    We’re looking for people who "do"! Folks who are passionate enough to work on crazy world-changing ideas. Tell us what makes you apply to InOut, what excites you, accomplishments you are proud of and whatever else you think can strengthen your chances of acceptance. We’ll get to know more about your abilities from the past projects, GitHub profile, participation/awards in other hackathons.

  • Can we apply as a team?

    Yes! This hackathon is strictly a team competition. We believe that you’re stronger as a team than you are apart. You can join or create a team once you've started an individual application.

  • What if I don’t have a team or an idea?

    Not to worry, most people don’t! We’ll have team formation and ideation events geared towards helping you find people to work with. You can join our Facebook Group to find potential teammates.

  • What shouldn’t I bring?

    Weapons of any kind, drugs, or alcohol. If you’re not sure whether something will be okay, please ask ahead of time!

  • What about hardware?

    If you have specific hardware in mind, bring it with you. We will be doing our best to lend hardware at the event and enable you to work on your dream hack. We’ll put out a list closer to the event so you can see what’s available.

  • I don’t want to hack, can I still get involved?

    If you're looking to be a volunteer or mentor (i.e. someone with technical skills who'd be willing to help out participants during the weekend), you should reach out to us at mentor@hackinout.co. If your company is interested in becoming a sponsor, check out the sponsorship section below.

  • When will applications close?

    The application portal will be closed on September 15th at 11:59pm IST. We evaluate applications on a rolling basis and acceptances will be sent every weekend via email. The sooner you apply, the better chances you have of acceptance. Once accepted, you’ll have five days to confirm your attendance.

  • How much does it cost?

    Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Nothing. Admission to InOut is completely free, thanks to our sponsors! We'll provide you with a weekend's worth of schwag, meals, drinks, snacks and a place to crash when you need a break from coding.

  • How big can a team be?

    You can form teams of up to 3 people. Most teams aim to have a mix of people with both design and developer skills.

  • Once I am accepted, what do I need to bring?

    A valid government issued photo ID, laptop, phone, chargers, any sleeping equipment you might want (we'll be providing mattresses) and a geeky t-shirt!

  • Do you provide travel reimbursements?

    Yes! Once accepted, you will have to submit your travel reimbursement forms and receipts on the Dashboard. For each location hackers travel from, we’ll determine a reasonable cap. We will reimburse travel costs up to this cap only.

  • What do I get by attending InOut?

    Pretty much everything from socializing with fellow hacker community to internship/job offers from the coolest tech companies. And yeah we’ll have prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd place, as well as the best hardware hack, and many other company sponsored prizes. We had well over ₹10,00,000 worth of prizes up for grab last time! Most of all, you will gain an unparalleled learning experience and memories for a lifetime!

  • Did we miss something?

...thanks a lot
