Hackathon: working together intensively to build an idea into a prototype in 26 hours.
The February 2014 hackathon is going to be their biggest ever. Students have already committed to attending from France. They are one of the fastest growing student hackathons in the world (along with HackMIT, MHacks, PennApps and Y-Hack) and plan to grow to 1000+ hackers from all around the world in the next 18 months.
Sponsors are yet to be annouced, but in the past, they have secured sponsorship from the likes of Ampersand, Microsoft, Apadmi, ScraperWiki & Treehouse.
What’s more….If you are part of a society or a large group of hackers, The organisers of studentahck are even offering hook you up with a super sweet ticket discount and a free shuttle bus from Manchester Piccadilly train or coach station.
And best of all…You’ll be doing some awesome hacking on the exact same road that Computer Science was born 65 years ago.
Studenthack are also running some free hacker workshops, covering some exciting topics such as Rails and Git and can help you set up some useful tools needed to help you become super productive and for the hackathon.
Who can attend?
