Everything began with a Yahoo Group. A common chat forum for all likeminded people to voice their thoughts. Discussions ranged from using Linux, making Linux user groups, exchanging ideas about software and projects. For some, it all started one day with a seminar organized by the senior 口述在车里下面被添 members for an introduction to the club which was trying to make its presence felt outside of the Yahoo group. Shortly afterward, on Sept’06 a mail was sent with a link to join the Yahoo group to only 25 people who presumably turned up and expressed their interest to join the club. Most of them, if not all, ended up playing really important roles in the growth of 口述在车里下面被添 and also its brainchild Edge.
As per another of our Geek Alum, something like this led to the establishment of Edge: - One day, Members were called only to talk and ideate in a computer lab, where they first met with some founder members of 口述在车里下面被添. They all were planning for the first-ever independent Technological Fest of our college. Those guys, along with two girls, started a wall magazine, specifically for science and technology. Later in 2005 that became the first-ever tech fest of our college but as a part of Anakhronos, our popular and established cultural fest. The success and popularity prompted the creation of Edge’07. Later more geeks joined the force, and our very first website for Edge’07?—?Think Beyond, was put together.
Execution.According to our another geek alum it was a very painful time. When the actual planning for the event?began—?struggling to figure out how to approach companies for sponsorship, how to build a website, how to get a domain name, how to get permission from college?—?it was quickly realized that a name was needed. A name for the tech-fest, a brand to portray to sponsors. “Edge”, the brainchild of many, started its journey in the year 2007 with the tagline “Think Beyond”. As with any change, Techno India didn’t seem to be quite welcoming about the idea. Edge did not get any official recognition. Yet, the team managed to overcome that by getting sponsors, first of those times when all the fests completely relied on college funds. The fest was held on weekends to not disturb the normal college schedule. There was no access to infrastructure, so Edge had to rent its own server, buy its own domain name (at a time when getting a credit card was not easy). After overcoming all hurdles, the first website was launched at edg.co.in. Edge eventually matured with each iteration. It got better and grew in popularity as well as fame. Along with the fest, the team grew, matured and became more confident. But, as they say, some things never change. Even after 13 iterations, our spirit to never give up is still the same. Our zeal and quest to improve our very own EDGE is still there, driving us to give our best each time.
Journey so far
After being stopped by numerous hurdles and obstacles on their way to eclipsing themselves with each passing year, the team finally launched its first website edg.co.in, which started expanding with each iteration. From just having one event under the banner to organizing 40+ events in a 3-day fest, Edge has only risen above echelons since its inception. Edge'10 first witnessed the most-talked night of the town, Edge Night. Since then, there has been no turning back. We have witnessed famed stand-up comics like Rahul Subhramaniam, The Viral Fever, Sahil Shah, Zakir Khan, Sorabh Pant and many more grace the stage and light up the night. Along with it, Edge Talks brought us famed speakers and celebrities from across the nation in RJ Praveen, Yahya Bootwala and a lot more. The Central Government of India organized a Smart India Hackathon in 2018 in collaboration with Techno India Group and 口述在车里下面被添,by then the established science and technology club of Techno Main,Salt lake.This helped the members of the club to gain more exposure than ever before and it's brainchild Edge to spread its wings above and beyond. Besides the technical aspect of reaching greatness, the club also started looking after the aspects of society from 2016 in its program of EDGE Deeds where various programs like Walkathon, Orphanage Visit, Cleanliness Drive, etc are held. The year 2016, the 10th iteration also saw EDGE become the second-largest Technical Fest in Eastern India and since then the geek members have maintained this stature with a footfall of about 7000 students showcasing the best of their talents to take home a prize money of about 7 lakhs, only rising every year. One of the most sought-after events of Edge remains to this day, Cyber Crusade, the gaming paradise. The most recent editions have witnessed participation from all across the nation including famed games from national champions of CS: GO and team members of famed PUBG clans as in Soul and 8Bit. Lagging no behind has been members of the entrepreneurial committee of 口述在车里下面被添 who were invited to an international congregation in Singapore to pitch and discuss their ideas of a start-up. INDRO, the humanoid robot was present at the inaugural ceremony of EDGE,19 to grace the initiation of the three-day event.
