FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

This event is aimed at people who are over 16. We want to encourage 16 to 19 year olds to work together on problems and to challenge themselves. The event is also open to those already working in the software/web industry who are interested in the tech talk, would like to help with mentoring and are keen to take on the challenges.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

The Innovation Center is located next to the Holiday Inn on the Maidstone Road, Chatham. It has plenty of parking and you should park in the main car park behind the center (the visitor's car park will be closed but you can park anywhere in the evening). To drive here, you should take the A230 from Chatham towards Maidstone. The center will be on your right, just after the Holiday Inn. To get to it you should drive past Asda and take the first slip road off to the roundabout, go right round and take the A230 back towards Chatham, the Innovation Centre slip road is soon after you join the dual carriageway.

To come by by bus you should take the 101 from Chatham Waterfront Bus Station or from Maidstone Town Center, Pudding Lane. Get off at the Watson Avenue, Holiday Inn stop which should be announced on the bus. Bus times are:

To arrive at 6.30pm:

From Chatham Bus Station: 6.01pm or 6.17pm

From Maidstone Town Centre: 5.56pm or 6.08pm

Around 9pm:

What can I bring into the event?

If you have your own laptop device, please bring it. There is a good strength wifi network available. If you don't have access to a laptop we have a limited number that we can lend for the evening. If there aren't enough laptops to go round then each team can program on one.

No software is needed except a web browser. HackerRank works entirely online.
