Tracks for HackGujarat
We don’t wanna limit you by providing some problem statements and research about them first. That’s why we have some tracks: Diversity Diversity means the inclusion of all individuals as technology does not discriminate. How can technology help to increase diversity and maintain it? Remotely Working As work from home is becoming is a widespread culture, technology can make the process easier. Any project that makes such an effort will fall into this category. Tech and Health Technology can create sustainable and effective relations between a healthcare professional and the patient. It can also provide a cheaper, faster, and more beneficial solutions to prevent and battle illnesses. Creating Awareness With the increase in the use of technology, the dangers have also increased. Awareness is the first step towards creating a better society and community. Awareness can be social, technical, or general.

As a mentor I learn from them, I taught them, overall I am inspired by the people and the ideas they have baught to this hackathon. Everyone has taken it has a challenge and built amazing and useful things in that less time which is so amazing.
Hack-Gujarat was a complete package of tremendous teaching, learning, networking and meeting new people and having lots of fun. I, as a mentor, was excited to look at the projects which participants built. I was very happy to see all of the people putting so much efforts right from the organizing team to all the participants. Some projects were very unique and helpful for the society for solving real life problems. While helping a lot of the participants about their doubts, I also learnt many new things and experimented it with the participants. I am happy to see such a growing community like Hack-Gujarat organizing such wonderful events. Hope to see all the people again in the next great event :)
