00a

The city’s first technological hackathon to come up with ideas for a ‘smart’ India where devices could be controlled from a single source, an organiser said on Saturday.  At least 100 computer programmers and innovators will brainstorm in the  event.
Organised in collaboration with National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM), the mega event will see teams consisting of engineers, designers and end-users working towards developing hardware prototypes, applications and softwares to address IoT related problems and transform the technological scene in India, said Mitra.

 

“There is a vast array of problems to choose from since we are moving towards an age where devices and gadgets will be controlled from a single source, a smart society where all devices around us will be connected to cloud,” Mitra explained.Cloud or cloud computing means consumption of computing resources as a utility – just like electricity – rather than having to build and maintain computing infrastructures in-house.

 

It basically means that computing facilities can be accessed from anywhere over the network using devices like smartphones, tablets, laptops, personal computers and so on. One example of cloud computing as a service is Flickr.The hackathon, Mitra said, will pitch problems centred on these themes. The event is a part of the varsity’s ‘Convolution 2015′ tech-fest
