Venue?[edit]

Hi @Jayanta (CIS-A2K): and others, Hackathon is less than a month away and venue is not decided. Isn't it costly to arrange confirmed last minute travels (be either air or rail) for such a short notice? Please plan in advance so we can have participants from all over places. --KartikMistry (talk) 07:59, 24 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Hi @KartikMistry:, Thank you for your concern and suggestion about the program logistic. We will look into that matter in our future upcoming programs. Although we have been planning this program last three month, but we announced to the community before one month.Thanks again Jayanta (CIS-A2K) (talk) 06:38, 28 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Project Ideas[edit]

Collect and list the project ideas so that developers can decide what to work on before the event and learn the basics. --Tshrinivasan (talk) 06:14, 28 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]
