Pakistan Team Wins 2nd Prize at F8 Hackathon in USA

A team from Pakistan, including Asad Memon and Azka Qaiser – man and woman – won the 2 and place on F8 Hackathon held at McEnery Convention Center, San Jose, CA, United States of America.

The Pakistani team walked away with the following rewards:

  • $ 10,000 USD
  • Facebook for developers blog post
  • F8 blog post
  • Special hackathon swag


The first prize was put in bags by a project with the title & # 39; Voice & # 39; that also does something similar to Pseudonym with a slogan reading & # 39; we give a voice to the things that you can not pronounce & # 39 ;.

The winner of the prize, Asad believes that the Pakistanis have a lot of potential, provided they get the chances like this.

I am very happy that we have had the chance to prove ourselves. Many others were selected from Pakistan, but unfortunately they did not receive a visa. I'm sure they would have reached the charts as well


The slogan for the project says & # 39; Anonymous conversations for Facebook groups & # 39 ;.

This means that you can now share your feelings anonymously, instead of using a pseudo-name that assigns the application to each user to ensure privacy.

There are so many problems that we often think about sharing anonymously, especially in the context of Pakistan, and the Pseudonymous bot allows you to do that without bringing your real name.

This is how it works: before and after.

All you have to do is add Pseudonym as the linked page or group of your group. Second, place the bot link, rather attached, so that users can post anonymously in the group. As soon as they click on the link, the Messenger opens where they can write their message that is published with a pseudo-name. It looks like this:

F8 Hackathon

Facebook organizes an event every year where teams from all over the world show their talents. After the preliminary selection, Facebook sponsors the airline tickets of the participants, hotel accommodation etc.

With the mission to give people the power to build community, Facebook invites applications every year to bring communities together through F8 Hackathon by building software applications using one of the Facebook developer products.

The assessment criteria include the following:

  • Quality of the idea (40%) – the idea had to be original and creative
  • Implementation of the idea (30% ) – idea execution, use of Facebook tools and attention to user privacy
  • Potential effect on communities (30%) – help the communities to grow positively

ProPakistani wishes him and his wife every success in their future efforts.
