We can’t wait for the UK’s first Major League Hacking season this Autumn. We’ve met dozens of enthusiastic hackathon organizers over the past few months. Everybody’s so keen to get involved and help grow a national community of hackers. We’ve had some cool events join the season calendar and we’re excited to tell you all about them.
The UK season starts in October and we’ve already got 6 events on the calendar with more coming soon. Here’s why you should be excited to go to each event:
MLH UK Launch Hack October 4th – 5th
To kick off the season, 200 students will converge on Bloomberg’s stunning London offices for a weekend of hacking fun. Come to theLaunch Hack for a taste of what’s to come in the MLH season: meeting likeminded people from around the country, learning new things, building cool stuff.
Do you have the GUTS? That’s the challenge GU Tech Soc set the hackers who come to GUHack. Come to Glasgow in the Autumn to share ideas, learn new things, and prove you have the guts to spend a weekend hacking. It’s set to be an extremely fun event.
StudentHack October 31st – November 2nd
This winter marks the third instalment of StudentHack, and we’re really looking forward to hacking at such an awesome event! Add to the fact that there is a Halloween theme, we’re certain this is going to be one weekend you’re definitely not going to want to miss!
Hackathon Plymouth October/November
Set in the UK’s 10th largest university, Hackathon Plymouth will bring hackers from across the country down to the South West. Having already held 2 hacks this year, the team behind Hackathon Plymouth are experienced and excited to push their limits in this inaugral MLH season.
The University of Nottingham’s HackSoc will be hosting its third hackathon in November. Robin Hood’s favourite hackathon will have hearty food, fun prizes, and 200 students. What more could a hacker want?
Yes! More hacks in the North! Tired of commuting to London to get your hacking fix? Well now you won’t have so far to go because Newcastle University are throwing their first hackathon. We’re excited to see what cool stuff all the northern hackers will be making at HackNE.
More hackathons coming soon!
We’ll be announcing even more hackathons for the Fall Season in the coming weeks. You’ll always be able to find the official schedule here.
