Hacxmas; A Christmas Hackathon

Dec 17 - 18, 2021, 6:00 PM (GMT)

About this event

Deck the halls with some code!!.... Well, not actually but expect it to be close. 

A weekend of workshop, fun, networking and building solutions. Get together with other students from participating universities to learn something new in this Christmas Hackathon. 

Socialise and network, learn to pitch a solution, design thinking and prototyping, coding, solution building and presentation. With lots of prizes to be won: Swags, Amazon gift cards, recognition and a feel of what the solution challenge for next year will be like.

You don't need to be a professional in coding as coding is not required, that is not a major criterion. Most of the skills required to get through the hackathon will be reviewed during the experience. So just come with your interest, your passion and your will.
