WHAT IS A HACKathon?
Hackathons provide a venue for self-expression and creativity through technology. People with technical backgrounds come together, form teams around a problem or idea, and collaboratively code a unique solution from scratch — these generally take shape in the form of websites, mobile apps, and robots.
HOW DO I BOOK MY TICKET?
Click HERE or on any of the booking tabs on this page, to go to the booking page, and follow the instructions.
DO I NEED TO BE IN A TEAM?
No. Complete teams are very welcome (recommendation is 4 people per team but any number between 2-6 will be accepted,) or if you don't already have a team, we will help everybody hook up with a hacker/s on the day, to create teams, during registration.
HOW WILL I GET MY CHALLENGE?
There will be a choice of challenges on the day, set by sponsors and supporters of the event. You can choose the challenge your team would most like to find a solution for.
DOES IT MATTER WHAT LEVEL I AM AT?
Not at all. There will be a range of challenges suitable for everybody from beginner to expert. We strongly encourage both new talents and experienced developers and are excited about the opportunity this event will provide for bringing a mix of talent together, and for both enjoyment and peer learning.
WILL THERE BE FOOD AND DRINK?
There will be a great range of delicious snacks and treats included, for you to help yourself to throughout the event, from cereals, toasted sandwiches, biscuits and cakes...to a beer and pizza supper! There will also be unlimited tea, coffee, hot chocolate, juice and water. If you have any particular dietary needs...or even just any favourites or cravings that you'd like to bring with you, please feel free to do so. Please note, whilst bringing your own alcohol is permitted, we politely request that you consume it sensibly (...and save the full celebrations for the pub after the event!)
WILL I BE ABLE TO SLEEP DURING THE EVENT?
Some people will chose not to, others will snooze occasionally and others will want to bed down for a few hours during the night...it's totally up to you. There are comfy chairs for relaxing in and plenty of floor space for anybody who wants to bring a pillow or sleeping bag, to find a quiet corner.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING WITH ME?
You will need a laptop and charger...and a writing pad and pen is probably a good idea. Other than that, just any personal items that you would like to bring and you might normally take to work or if away overnight, such as medication, glasses, phone and charger and wash bag (optional, but your team mates might appreciate it!)
