The term ‘hacker’ is quite reverberating to students from time they start operating computers. However the notion that has been inherited for the word in the society appears deeply misinterpreted. Someone who still doesn't understand the term, thinks a hacker is a person who works on 4 monitors at a time, has a fridge at his door step, chips and pizzas always at his disposal, operates from the basement of a house and most importantly has access to the government’s secret databases and virtually can do anything they want. We find it very funny that such notions still exist in the era of technology and computer.
A hacker, in computing world is not just a person who knows how to code, encrypt and decipher the data well, but also one who can sweat out every second of his life to achieve the impossible. An important quality of a hacker is that they can figure out a solution in the least given time with zero errors and perfect codes. So if you can code, then put your skills to test by participating in India Hacks 2013 conducted by HackerEarth and YourStory.
Hacking doesn't mean you build million dollar applications overnight. But you have the advantage if you excel in atleast three coding languages. For that matter, a term hacker need not be restricted to someone who knows to work around a computer system, but it can even be someone who takes up newer challenges every single day without giving up.
Students today are born hackers. They take the initiative to question situations they are in and have the dedication to deal with situations and come up with solution.
