Chennai-based Zoho Corporation has announced the winners of the third edition of its global Low-code Hackathon. During the three-month competition, which started in May 2023, participants created industry-agnostic solutions to real-world problems using Zoho Creator, the company's flagship low-code platform.   

This year, the top three winners emerged from India and took home gifts worth $10,000. Raju RK, a developer from Chennai's Kinara Capital, bagged the first position with his healthcare and hospital management solution. This is a one-stop solution that streamlines processes pertaining to patients, doctors, and hospital administrators. 

Sahaya Angel Alexander, a homemaker from Nagercoil, came in second for building a course management solution to help educational institutes streamline administrative tasks, enhance the learning experience for students, and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of course delivery with features like progress checks and resource repositories.

Snehal Bordekar, a technology architect from Mumbai, bagged the third spot with a social-impact-focused solution. Called Bharat Krishi, it provides farmers with access to real-time weather information, finance management tools, a job board for hiring workers, and a directory of irrigation technology and practices. 

Hackathon provides a platform for developers and enthusiasts to create innovative solutions, leveraging the power of low code. "It creates an environment of collaboration, co-creation, and innovation that brings together passionate individuals. It also helps us identify exceptional talent, from out-of-the-box thinkers to meticulous solution builders,” said Bharath Kumar B, head of marketing and customer experience at Zoho Creator. 

First started in 2021, it has garnered over 2,700 global registrations over the last three years. Developers from 15 countries, including India, the US, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, the UK, Argentina, and Canada, participated in the Hackathon this year.
