Hackathon Society

Hackathons take place on weekends and are typically 24 hour code sprints hosted by universities across the country. On top of this the club would arrange a weekly meet-up for socializing, organizing and programming.


In addition to this, we would like to explore:

  • Arranging tech talks, done by a student/staff member or inviting a guest speaker to campus.
  • Purchasing hardware that could be utilized by club members, also providing a way for members to donate old, damaged or unwanted hardware to be experimented with.
  • Share experiences and interest, for example one member may be particularly interested in or skilled with a certain scripting language and could provide an ad hoc crash courses for curious members, preparing them for events.

Aims and Objectives:

1. Introduce more students to Hackathons and make them accessible for everyone.

2. Encourage collaboration to produce competitive teams and match skills that complement each other.

3. Spread programming knowledge to a wider and more diverse audience of students from different backgrounds and subjects.

4. Provide an environment to allow experimentation with hardware and software, learning new technologies.

5. Bring together a social group of like-minded people with similar interests.
