About

Coders. Problem solvers. Computer geeks. Developers. Technical architects. We are a close knit group of computer science enthusiasts that enjoy coding and hope to make a difference with our code. Our work spans across all domains of Computer Science from Web and App Development to cutting edge technology like Machine Learning, Blockchain, Game Development, Cloud and IOT. As the official Web Team and programming club of NIT Trichy, we develop and maintain the institute's official website and handle web related activities of the institute's festivals including the cultural fest, Festember and the technical fest, Pragyan. Our members are constantly working with cutting edge technology and software on their exciting personal projects. We love hackathons and spend a lot of our time working on new ideas. The club also conducts events and workshops on an annual basis.
