Padakosham

A 2-day hackathon organized by IT@school, KochiPython and Swathanthra Malayalam Computing (SMC). IT@school is working on a new initiative to augment the IT Education at school, and a web-application is crucial to get it off the ground. To build and deploy this project, KochiPython and SMC have teamed up with IT@school to conduct a hackathon over a weekend.

Anyone with a moderate level of experience with Django can register and participate in this hackathon.

More Details:

IT@school is starting IT Clubs in schools all across Kerala. One of the major activities being planned is building a Malayalam - Malayalam dictionary (which may be extended to a multi-lingual dictionary in the future). This project is designed to pique the interest of students in software products while also being a useful project for the general public. This would be an ideal project to build a data-rich, crowd-source dictionary and, if executed properly, this could act as a cornerstone for other Malayalam computing applications.
