Benefits Of HackOwasp

Hackathons stimulate the creative thinking of participants and foster problem-solving and risk-taking in a competitive environment. In hackathons, one propels itself out of its safe haven and aspires to emanate as the best.

Hackathons provide a very good opportunity for participants to network with people from different backgrounds. During their presentation, you can know what techniques or software they used so you can understand what you are lacking in terms of knowledge and skillsets, in another way of speaking, you can estimate your competitiveness in the job market.
