Deerthon 2016 was the first event of its kind, both for DWIT and the event Hackathon itself. Unlike other Hackathons, the 12 participating teams were judged on the technicality of their codes rather than the concept and presentation. The technicality of the code weighed 70% of the total score while presentation weighed 30%. The event which took place in Sagarmatha Hall, DWIT was hosted by Subigya Nepal, President of the Software Club. Dixanta Bahadur Shrestha, CEO of Leapfrog Academy was judging on the technicality and attended the event as a chief guest. Hitesh Karki, Chief Academic Officer, DWIT handed the prizes and certificates to the winning teams.
