Participating in SPIDER 2.0 was a wonderful experience. Our team had participated in the previous version as well, and this one was just as fun! We liked how smooth the event process was, and the themes were quite relevant to real-life scenarios. The judging panel was exemplary, and the competition was really exciting! Looking forward to it next year as well!

I participated in Spider: The Web Crawler last year and it was an amazing experience. Very few platforms provide college students to celebrate our talent of web development as effectively as Spider. The judging pannel also helped me understand my mistake and I learned a lot from the judges too. It was a truly enriching experience.
