Does the registration mean I can come for the hackathon?
Unfortunately, no. We would be reviewing your application and sending out confirmations.
What should I bring to the event?
You should bring everything that you will need to create your solution. Mostly, that will be a laptop and a charger. You might also want to bring a fresh set of clothes to change into the next day, along with your deo and face towel.
Please also carry a valid ID proof with you.
Can I stay overnight?
That will be an individual choice. We’ll make arrangements for a few of us to snooze, or just relax. If you want to catch a proper sleep, you’ll be advised to go home and come back early in the morning – just make sure you manage your time well.
I would like to volunteer for your event, or partner with Paytm. Who do I do?
Please talk to us on [email protected]
