These are the teams who won codedamn’s #hackfest

Hey Folks! We are super excited to announce the winners of codedamn’s maiden #hackfest held from June 4 to June 6, 2022. We saw an overwhelming response and some awesome projects from the participating teams. But first a quick brief on the hackathon:

  • 650+ teams competed to take home the prizes
  • Teams had to build a full-stack application with Node.js as the preferred backend & React as the preferred frontend
  • The judging criteria were as follows:
    • 🏗️ Originality of the Idea: What made a teams project stand apart and what features did they build for its execution
    • 💯 Code Quality: The better the code, the higher the score, simple!
    • 😉 Code Working: And of course, writing the code is easy, but making sure it works, carries its own weight

Winners

Well, without any further ado, here are the winners! 

100 Days Of Code Platform, by Vindicators

This platform is intended for all the beginners who are learning programming or the experts who are seeking feedback on their projects. As you know, you can share your code on GitHub and announce it on Twitter but if you have fewer followers then it is obvious that you won’t get the most feedback, so we want this platform not to discriminate against anyone based on their followers or anything like that. We made this platform targeting every programmer where they can share their projects, gain feedback from different developers and also collaborate with others. Our main intention is to help developers or beginners doing the #100DaysOfCode challenge.

Focusi, A Pomodoro Timer, by Beluga the Hackers

Focusi is a Pomodoro timer built for codedamn hackfest. It’s a very user-friendly and customizable Pomodoro timer that works on desktop & mobile browsers. The aim of this app is to help you focus on tasks you are working on, like studying, writing, or coding. This app is inspired by Pomodoro Technique which is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo.

It was made by my team of three Indian brothers Piyush Panpaliya (Frontend developer), PranayBagde (UI/UX Designer) and Anurag Kumar (Backend developer).

Speech Docs – Interact with Documents, by Triology

From School students to university students and to working professionals everyone has their daily dependencies on word documents. These documents can be used to convey their ideas, projects or even sometimes take notes. Keyboard and mice are useful for most but there are some individuals who have unsupportable conditions such as Arthritis in the hand, Parkinson’s, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, or Essential Tremor for which the keyboard is painful.

To solve this problem we come up with a solution Speech docs. Speech docs aim to solve such problems by enabling only voice to interact with the documents. Users can give commands by their voice to perform many operations such as create, open, write, replace words, etc.
