“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” and when we announced Hackathon, we had no idea of what it could turn into.
Well, we now have startups asking for the next Hackathon date (they are now working on exposing their APIs) to partners coming along with ideas and concepts for the Hackathon.
Today, we are glad to share that our partner, AngelPrime team is sponsoring 5 tickets for the upcoming Hackathon (scheduled for this weekend).
AngelPrime is an incubator launched by Sanjay Swamy (ex-mChek) and Snapfish Cofounders, Bala and Shripati and the team has couple of ideas for all ye hackers and designers.

In their own words:
We’d like to invite great people to take up the challenge to design and implement prototypes for the following – ONLY us
ing open-source stacks:
- A great transaction browser
Goodbye to the boring spreadsheet/table/database look – that’s passe’. How would you change how we view banking and other transactions online? Show us your best – allow consumers to tag transactions, add comments, create categories on the fly, post to Facebook/Twitter etc.
- A great SMS and email parser that makes sense of SMS’s and emails
Keywords are passe’ – we can make sense from SMS’s without requiring keywords by doing a textual search and tag. Build us a great SMS parser that uses open-source tools.
For those who do address these problems and work on delivering us great solutions, we will be happy to reimburse their cost of attending the Pluggd.In hackathon (costs INR 1,800).
Do fill up the form (embedded towards the end of this article), if you are game (the deadline to apply for this is November 2nd). We will connect you with AngelPrime team for further queries.
– Win an iPad (thanks to Zomato, our Hackathon partner).
