Hacking is building things that you always wanted to have but no one has built it yet. It's to come up with an amazing idea and work tirelessly on it. It is to fail, fail again and fail better. Try out new things and learn while doing that. It's to work together, collaborate and build things that are innovative. It is to be a better programmer.

With that spirit, HackerEarth is conducting a hackathon in collaboration with homefirst finance company - Homefirst Entrepreneurship Hackathon 2019 and invites all budding entrepreneurs to showcase their talent to help fulfill the mission of 'Housing For All' by participating in an interesting and engaging hackathon.
