About InOut 7.0

Dates: 27 November - 21 December

InOut prides itself on being India’s biggest community hackathon.

Since its inception in 2015, InOut has been a platform where technology leaders and the brightest minds come together to collaborate on building tools that solve real problems. With big breakthroughs in the past six editions, our team is thrilled to host its seventh, virtually.

We are all set to make InOut 7.0 a bigger success than any of the previous iterations.

Everyone is welcome!

  • To make new friends

InOut provides a brilliant opportunity for you and your team to forge professional contacts and make new friends. With over 2500 developers and designers gathering from all over the country virtually, grab your chance of connecting with people to discuss ideas and opportunities.

  • To learn

Hackathons are a great way to give back to the community. Mentoring beginners is always helpful for them and rewarding for us. We’re going to have mentors from a number of different organizations to guide your throughout the hackathon. Whenever you’re stuck on a problem or need suggestions they'll always be within a hand’s reach.

  • To build

Watching software materialize from pure thought, part by part is the closest to experiencing magic we have ever got to. And we’re excited to see that magic happen all over again!

Note: Participation in the hackathon is based on application evaluations and by invitation only.

Prizes

Top 5 winners

We have exciting gear worth $1500 in all lined up for each member of the top 5 winning teams at InOut 7.0

Funding for Every Project

Using Quadratic funding, we aim to support and subsidize the further development of projects which are useful to more people but don’t have patrons who can fund them entirely.

How much each project receives in support from the public will determine how much they further receive from our $5000 Devfolio Support Fund.

Build India Fellowship

Stand a chance to bag $10,000 through Build India Fellowship. The magic here is that this grant will be equity-free to help you incentivize your build!

We’re looking for people under 22, with a long term building-orientation, willing to take 6 months out and work full-time on their projects.

Top teams at InOut will get to cut the line and directly skip to the interview stage.

FAQ

IP of the projects developed in the hackathon will reside with the creators of the project.

You can reach out about further questions on the Telegram group or on hello@devfolio.co.

We do not give problem statements. There will be API prizes from multiple sponsors to build a hack on top of their APIs or SDKs. Keep an eye out on the 'Inspire me' section on the Devfolio projects page as well where we'll be adding more ideas to hack on closer to the event. Teams are free to pick from them as well.

Everyone is welcome to apply, be it students, professionals, or Turing-test certified androids. If you are under 18 years of age, we’ll need your parent's consent.

You don't need ideas, but we'll look at your application in more detail if you already have things brewing in your mind. The question asking about the interesting problem you'd like to solve in the application process was an evaluation metric and unrelated to the final project you end up building. It has now been removed and is longer part of the application process.

As always, at InOut, you are free to build on any idea you wish to once accepted, even if it is different from the problem you've mentioned in your application as being something you'd like to solve.

Yes! This hackathon is strictly a team competition. We believe that you’re stronger as a team than you are apart. You can submit projects in teams of 2-5 people. Most teams aim to have a mix of people with both design and development skills. You can join or create a team once you've started an individual application.

We’re looking for people who "do"! Folks who are passionate enough to work on crazy world-changing ideas. Tell us what makes you apply to InOut, what excites you, accomplishments you are proud of, and anything else you think can strengthen your chances of acceptance. We don't care about your formal credentials, and we'll look into your building abilities from past projects, GitHub profile, participation/awards in other hackathons.

Applications will close at 11:59 PM IST, 22 November

Yes! Every team member from the top 100 projects submissions will have InOut schwag delivered to their doorstep throughout India.

Pretty much everything from socializing with fellow hacker community to internship/job offers from the coolest tech companies. And yeah we’ll have prizes for finalist teams, and many other company sponsored prizes. We had well over ₹10,00,000 worth of prizes up for grab last time not to mention some of the coolest schwag around! Most of all, you will gain an unparalleled learning experience and memories for a lifetime!
