As an institution that has done a remarkable service to the IT industry for more than a decade of time, this hackathon event was held in the purpose of motivating students and alleviating their knowledge. To that end, many institutions that are involved with the IT industry co-operated with IJSE to make this event more meaningful conducting quite a number of awareness sessions on various fields related to Information technology, aspiring the students to thrive for a path of their own in the IT industry.
To this event, 13 teams were shortlisted from both Galle Branch and the Panadura Branch of IJSE and among them, white hats were able to emerge as the winner, and the 2nd place was taken by the team “Titan Coders” marking the end of the competition. The winning team was awarded 60,000LKR and the 1st runner-up team was awarded 24,000LKR appreciating their hard work and enthusiasm.
Never betraying the expectations of everyone, the Hackathon 2020 ended splendidly under the guidance of the Institute of Software Engineering and after the event, the organising committee revealed that there will be an Idea Hackathon in the near future.
