Hack the Blockchain at HackathonPune 2018
India's first pure-blockchain hackathon event
The third edition of HackathonPune is set to take place in Pune on October 13. The event is being co-hosted by e-Zest and Fresco Capital in association with Microsoft. Since its inception in 2016, HackathonPune is based on a different theme each year. This year, the theme chosen for the event is Blockchain for Good.

e-Zest is passionate about their venture into Blockchain, which is a futuristic technology with a myriad of uses. The event is a platform for techies and idea enthusiasts to explore the many applications of Blockchain technology.

The core objective of HackathonPune is to offer a learning experience and help create better solutions with excellent ideas. The participants will have the opportunity to network, ideate, and challenge themselves through hands-on-learning in a tight time-capsule, which has in the past led to the surfacing of some very innovate ideas.

This event is open to programmers, students, and entrepreneurs. Participants will receive a brief introduction about blockchain, and SMEs will be available for consultation. There is no restriction on the technology or framework. The hacking will take place for 24-hours during which participants will attend a reception, a music gig, and some discussions.

“Blockchain is a relatively new entrant in the world of technology. Due to its virgin nature, there is a lot that can be explored. With HackathonPune we are expecting a lot of new uses of Blockchain to surface, which will be in sync with solutions for real-world problems,” says Devendra Deshmukh, CEO & Founder of e-Zest Solutions.

“It is a great privilege to partner with e-Zest Solutions on this important initiative”, says Stephen Forte, Managing Partner of Fresco Capital. “HackathonPune is a brilliant place to build a long-term community and collaborate with talented people of Indian-IT.”
