Frequently Asked Questions

What's a 'hackathon'?

A hackathon is a programming marathon, where teams of 2-4 put their ideas together to create something exciting in only 24 hours. It gives teams of hackers a chance to turn their ideas into reality and present them.

There will be a number of prizes for using specific technologies as well as the overall best project. There will be additional prize pools available exclusively to first-timers!

An increasing amount of projects coming out of Hackathons get turned into startup businesses, and we welcome students from any discipline to have their go at hacking!

Can I attend?

Yes. We welcome attendees from all disciplines as we strongly believe Hackathon projects require skills beyond just technical - benefiting from skills such as design, entrepreneurship and overall creativity.

What do I need to bring?

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we will of course be hosting our event online. Just bring you and your laptop :) Further details ensue upon sign-up!
