ISTE BIT’s ‘SPIDER: THE WEB CRAWLER’ Hackathon Allows Participants To Learn And Earn At The Same Time



The rays of hope are diminishing day by day due to the present COVID situation. And we are all suffering from an academic setback. During these tough times, the Indian Society for Technical Education Students’ Chapter, BIT SINDRI presents you with an opportunity to learn and earn at the same time.

“SPIDER: THE WEB CRAWLER” as a Web Development Hackathon, brings up an exclusive opportunity. The event’s main focus is to help budding developers showcase their skills.

It is a national-level front end web-developing competition for all the learners out there who have dreamt of building a website of their own. This event gives them the opportunity to launch their websites for free. Divided into three stages, the competition caters prize money worth ₹50k.

Why participate?

This hackathon has some real-life problems and the solution to those via virtual websites can bring up a real impact.
