The insightful session will primarily be focused on the ever-increasing use of technology in our daily lives, how cybersecurity will become even more crucial in safeguarding our digital assets, and how it will be an essential practice in protecting personal and business information, preserving business continuity, complying with regulations, and maintaining trust and reputation. Over these three days, individuals can participate in HackFIT – the hackathon competition at the event. They will also join in skill-enhancement workshops in Augmented Reality (AR), Flutter, DevOps, and Web Development.

ICEFOSS 2023 is a great platform for young software enthusiasts from across the country to come together, learn, and connect on their shared interests.

With our deep domain expertise, we aim to share the knowledge in emerging technologies with the students and continue to lead the roadmap for the Kerala IT industry,” said Sreekumar Pillai, Co-founder, and CTO, of Experion Technologies.
Participants can enter the hackathon competition individually or as a team of up to five members. It will conclude on the third day, April 4th, with the winners announced at a subsequent valedictory function. The winning team and the two runners-up will receive monetary prizes and be offered an opportunity to connect with some leading technology industry partners, including Experion.
“We are glad to have Experion collaborate this year to organize ICEFOSS 2023 with us and create a three-day event for tech enthusiasts to come together, participate in the programs we have arranged, and build a shared space that celebrates creativity.
