Description

36h hackathon in the beautiful south of England. Come hack with us on your craziest ideas!

Mighty hackers and tech lovers, the time has come to prove the world who's the best hacker in South England! This is the moment that all HackaSotoners have been waiting for since the beginning of the academic year. If you've attended a hackathon before, you know how much fun they are. If you haven't, come and we'll show you!

HackaSoton and Fish on Toast are inviting you to the biggest hackathon of the year: Hack The South!

We're calling out for people with ingenious thinking, rockstar programming skills, curious beginners, designers, or even business heads, to join us for an entire weekend of hacking. Here's how it works: if you have an idea, you come over and pitch it to form a team; if you don't know what to work on, join others and lead your team to glory (i.e. winning the hackathon). If you're a pro, you'll surely find something challenging to work on. However, even if you're just starting or only know Java (hey, if that's what they teach at uni...) don't fear—people with no prior coding experience managed to deliver awesome results in past hackathons.

We know, we know: "hacking" the world is not an easy job. FOOD and REFRESHMENTS will be provided throughout the weekend, as always. There's that quote... Stay Hungry Stay Foolish... well, not at our hackathon ;)

We are very excited about this and we are expecting to see some amazing ideas come to life by the end of the hackathon. Our amazing Gold sponsors are Deutsche Bank and American Express.

FAQ

  • What is a hackathon?
    During a hackathon you have 24-48 hours to work with a small team on something new and exciting. You will compete with other teams, but in the end everyone is a winner!
  • What can I make?
    Anything! This may include both software and hardware.
  • Does this cost money?
    Nope. This is completely free.
  • Do I have to know how to code?
    No, as long as you want to work with others to help develop yours, or someone else’s idea! Generally, we need developers, designers and entrepreneurs!
  • Is there food?
    More than you can imagine.
  • Can I sleep there?
    There will be a sleeping area, but you should bring a sleeping bag if you really wish to sleep. If you are traveling from a long distance contact us after your application and we will try our best to accommodate you!
