ABOUT

After successfully organizing its first-ever digital variation last year we are back this year, grander than ever, with a diverse array of activities, including the synchronized delivery of workshops, guest lectures by persons of the highest calibre in the sectors of technology and entrepreneurship. Accompanied by a 36 hour long, Central India’s largest ‘Hackathon’ which allows participants to put their intellect to the test, be acknowledged and rewarded, and get new learning experiences. In a stroke, Version Beta is the souls' satisfier of tech aficionados while also fostering the next generation of developers, thinkers, and entrepreneurs.

MASCOT

Blaze-The Fiery Phoenix is, as given by the name, flamed by his will to remain immortal and young forever. He liked everything about youth, and the energy it had held. Unlike the villains who would bewitch the world with beauty, Blaze just wanted immortality to soar high into the sky so that he could have the honour to meet his mentor, The Sun.

But life was never a cakewalk for Blaze. No one was ever good to Blaze as he was the best-looking one among them all and he was the only one who could code. His feathers shone brighter than the light reflecting from oceans in the day. Hence, no one missed a chance to grab some of his feathers and soon enough, Blaze lost them all and became an old bald bird that couldn’t fly. He was devastated and his dream to be young and soar high seemed to have shattered. That’s when his mentor’s words echoed in his mind. “Every problem comes with a breakthrough and the one who fails to find one never gets one”. Blaze started to wail for the Sun to ask him what he could do but received no response.

Our mascot gives out a message that an ending could be a possible beginning of something much more enthralling and to do your best until the very end of everything. Don’t fear a backlash and when faced with one just focus on what you can do.
