Description

Suited more for developers and a tech-minded audience :-)

Oracle's first free 24-hour hack in partnership with The Prince's Trust will be hosted over the weekend of 30th June - 1st July. This Hackathon is open to university students, hobbyist programmers and corporate businesses; so it'll be a great opportunity for all parties to network throughout the weekend.

Throughout the Hack we hope to achieve new and innovative approaches The Prince's Trust can move forward with in order to tackle the issues faced by their demographic. We aim to make a positive impact to society to allow the Trust to use innovative ways to help young people in challenging circumstances.

There will be plenty of food provided, prizes to be won, presenting opportunities and large social media exposure. We strongly recommend bringing your own laptops, chargers and sleeping bags to our overnight Hack! Tickets are allocated on a first come first serve basis. So be quick to ensure your place at the hack!

The Prince's Trust:
