Spirathon is an annual appathon organized by Spiralogics International in partnership with Spiralogics Institution of Technology. At this event, a team consisting of a maximum three members will need to build a prototype application based on a specific agenda.

The team members will need to turn the raw idea they have into a real-life computer application. The team can build their use in any computer language & platform. There are no set barriers for this. Spiralogics as well as other top profiled software companies will be providing mentorship to each of the team. Each team will be assigned the mentor two-weeks before the appathon to guide them on their project.
