Jaipur (aka ‘Pink City’) is most popular for its rich heritage and it’s no surprise that it’s among the most popular tourist destinations in India. The city has a unique aura when it comes to a diverse culture with some amazing international events such as the Jaipur Literature Festival, Jaipur International Film Festival and lots more.
However, the fact that Jaipur has a thriving IT industry, a growing startup incubation culture and an amazing talent pool of engineering graduates and post graduates is not very well known. Therefore, when I tried to float the idea of doing a geek hackathon in Jaipur in 2008, there were no takers.
However, times have changed, the ‘Jaipur Hackathon‘ has arrived and a new tech revolution is set to begin.
