Hackathon?

This is an event, typically lasting several days, in which a large number of students/people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming. Many of our members secure summer internships and win prizes at these events.

We plan to host a variety of events, and welcome members of all skill levels and backgrounds. These events include:

  • Very active society with a wide range of socials. We run a 4 weekly schedule, with the theme changing every 4 weeks. The events in these four weeks include: Tutorials and talks, game development competitions, collaborative project sessions and special one off events.
  • Weekly programming practice, in which members can work through problems as teams to gain the skills necessary to represent the University in the national and international competitive programming competitions. 
  • Guest talks from well known hackers and developers, to provide crucial insight into the world of programming for a living

  • The skills we develop are massively sought after in industry
