The fest hosts three main events -

AlgoStrike is an algorithmic programming contest where teams of three are challenged to engineer a solution to an innovative problem by applying heuristic algorithms. Participants will have to design complex algorithms while ensuring efficiency to pave the way for the future of problem-solving.

DevHack 2.0 is the second edition of the annual hackathon conducted at IIT Dharwad. We have always believed that engineers, researchers, and industrialists have the power to revolutionize the world by transforming their inspiring ideas into solutions that positively impact society. The event aims to coalesce such an enthusiastic community in a 36-hour hackathon by ideating, innovating and hacking meaningful solutions to real-life problems in various fields of AI, Blockchain, FinTech, Health, etc.

VeniVidiVici is a jeopardy style Information Security challenge where teams compete and put their hacking skills to the test to capture various flags hidden throughout the various tasks given to them. The event aims to provide a controlled and secure environment that is capable of simulating realistic conditions similar to those faced by security professionals in their daily life.

The fest has gained support from many companies and it would thrill us to have others interested to join us in our journey to bring radical change and inspire future generations.
