MesoHacks 2022 is a 48-hour hackathon organized by Team MesoHacks from 2nd – 4th September 2022.
MesoHacks 2022 was planned in an online mode. We saw a turnout of around 1100 participants during the event. The final project roster had more than 120 projects.
MesoHacks 2022 did not revolve around one specific theme. We gave our participants complete freedom to choose from one of the six mentioned themes. These themes were Healthcare, Education, Cybersecurity, AI/ML, Hardware, and Open Innovation. We believe in allowing the participants to use every bit of creativity to come up with creative and innovative ideas without being bound by some problem statements or a theme.
Many participants were first-time hackers, so we organized beginner-level workshops to get these people started with hacking. We also had a team of experienced mentors available 24*7 on our discord server to clear any doubts the participants had. We had sessions on the basics of API, ML, and Penetration Testing. We also had a talk followed by a Q&A session by Rushabh Mehta, Founder Frappe, and FOSS United.
In addition to these fantastic workshops, we also had some fun mini-events to lighten the tension and interact with our hackers. MLH organized the mini-events.
After 46 hours, the teams were given a soft deadline to start submitting their projects. The submission criteria were to include a 2-3 minute video explaining the project, a link to a public repository of their project, and a detailed project description. The hacking ended at 4 PM, 4th September, after 48 hours.
The winners were announced during the closing ceremony on 5th September. The participants had put a lot of effort into their projects. Choosing a winner and judging their efforts was one of the most challenging tasks.
