There’s no reason to not take the side projects seriously. Many successful startups started as side projects and so will they.
Here are some of the side projects our community hackers are working on:
- NewsMeme — short videos for news and events summary.
NewsMeme, made by Anand Prakash and Saurav Tomar , a web app for short video news and event summary covered in 30sec. It’s done by only adding 30 Sec voice narration and 6 photographs on NewsMeme dashboard and their Python script automatically generates 6 images and voice narration in video format and it gets published on Facebook page.
2. CollegeGapp — Connecting colleges.
CollegeGapp is a one-stop platform to connect college level events all over Delhi. No more following threads on facebook or searching and scraping for events.
They are small team of 5 people with 2 co-founders from NSIT, Prabhakar Gupta and Swati Garg. Swati handles the complete android part and Prabhakar is everything officer, be it handling the servers to going to different Business plan competitions.
3. Village Connect — Making internet available to people with no internet connection.
In a world that is getting exceedingly connected via social media while succumbing to the marvels of internet and technological innovation, it is a matter of grave concern that more than half of India’s population is still deprived of internet access. Keeping in the mind the vision of “Digital India”, they made a platform, Village Connect which helps people living in rural areas of India with limited Internet access get access to the Internet.
It basically consists of a system where one person, who is financially more stable and can afford a good Internet connection, has their platform installed on his computer, following which, every person in the village simply needs to connect with that computer — wirelessly or with a wired connection. This may sound a bit complex, but once the setup is complete, people can enjoy numerous services offline without having to pay anything.
wow such cool projects are being build by the hackers at college and you know even the school kids are no less. They are even cooler and cofounding startups with angel investors :)
