Technovation was also a host to binary geeks, a competition for all the coding enthusiasts and one of a kind 15 hour long hardware hackathon meant for all the technologists who can innovate and work well under pressure.

To include a bit of fun and frolic in these three days, Technovtion was also host to a FIFA 19 and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) tournaments for all the gaming enthusiasts out there with attractive cash prizes and goodies.
