Events

X will consist of our online hunt, CryptX, and six on-site events — Design, Quiz, Gaming, Programming, Speaking, and Surprise Event. Each event will have a unique theme based around Make.

At X, we want all participants of a team to come together as a startup and Make something. All events are interconnected to each other, and add towards the final goal of creating a useful product.

Design

Number of members per team: Up to 3

The Design team will have to create a brand identiy, along with a website, deck and other essential features of their startup.

A PC or laptop loaded with eveything you might need, and a connection to the internet will be provided to each team. Participants are encouraged to get their laptops, tablets, and other devices to increase productivity and test responsive designs.

Participants will be required to upload all files on the cloud at the end of the first day and will be allowed to work from their homes. They will also be allowed use external libraries, scripts, and templates, but judging will be done keeping originality and creativity in mind.

Nishant Gadihoke may be contacted in case of any queries.
