Following the astounding popularity of FaceCode Hackathon, KRDS, India’s Facebook Preferred Developer Consultant (now PMD), is organizing ‘KRDS FaceCode’ for the second year in a row. ‘KRDS FaceCode’ is a 24hr, all-night hack contest for the developer community to build apps exclusively for Facebook. The enthusiastic response displayed by this community last year encouraged KRDS to conduct a second edition, the theme for which is ‘Write the Future’. FaceCode is one of India’s largest hackathons in scope; it encourages people to develop apps around real-life issues like corruption, education, traffic hauls etc. on Facebook, to lead Indians into a better future. With the social revolution India is experiencing today, developing apps for the social cause is one of the best ways to showcase demands. However, the themes for app development are left to the team’s creativity.
The contest begins on Saturday, July 7th and ends on Sunday, July 8th. FaceCode is open to all enthusiasts – freshers as well as working professionals – who can participate online or from KRDS’ offices in Chennai, Bengaluru and Delhi. More details here.
