A hackathon is a day-long invention marathon. Participants work in teams to create awesome projects from scratch, learn new skills and have some fun along the way! All skill levels are very welcome.
Any enrolled undergraduate or postgraduate student, or graduate less than a year out of university. Students will be required to show their student ID on arrival.
Unfortunately not! However, UCLU TechSoc are running a hackday for young people in March, so keep your eyes peeled.
Nothing. HackLondon is a free event, with meals provided thanks to the generosity of our lovely sponsors.
You can hack with however many people you like! However, only teams of 4 or fewer are eligible to win prizes.
Sure! We'll have gender-separated sleeping rooms available, but bring some things to make yourself comfortable.
Your laptop, any electronics you wish to use, chargers, comfortable clothes, toiletries and a sleeping bag or blanket and pillow. And of course, your student ID.
Only projects started at the hackathon will be eligible for prizes, as it would be unfair otherwise.
