Event description

Description

BUILD, Kingdom Code’s annual hackathon is back for 2019. In October, join Christian technologists from across the UK and beyond to share ideas and kick start projects that integrate our Christian faith and technical skill sets.

Kingdom Code Build 2019

Whether you’re a developer, designer, project manager, branding/marketing expert, ideator or something else entirely, enjoy taking a weekend to meet and work with others who share your desire to see God glorified through technology.

Here’s what people have said about previous BUILD events:

  • "I got to work on [solving] a problem for Christians Against Poverty that could be genuinely useful… while learning new front-end technologies.
  • "Seeing the excitement and passion in people as they took ideas from conception to a presentable prototype was inspiring."
  • "It was such a highlight to meet other Christian developers and discussing God centered technologies."


Kingdom Code BUILD Venue

BUILD 2019 is being hosted by St. John’s in Hoxton.

St. John’s sits minutes away from Silicon Roundabout, London’s tech hub. They have long been a supporter of Kingdom Code and we’re really excited to be able to host the hackathon with them.


Kingdom Code BUILD Challenges

Details about the 2019 challenges are coming soon, however to whet your appetite, check out some of the challenges from previous events:

In 2017 Christians Against Poverty asked us “how can digital tools enable churches to serve the poor and save the lost in their local communities?” Home for Good asked “how could Home for Good better use digital tools to inspire people, support them in their fostering and adoption journey and enable them to be part of a growing movement?

Kingdom Code BUILD FAQs

Why are we charging for this event?
Ticket sales will cover less than half the cost. The hackathon in London is hosted by Kingdom Code, a not-for-profit group, with a passion to help Christians in technology find encouragement and collaborate. Over half the budget will be met by the generosity of sponsors.

Are you going to feed me?
Yes! You'll be well fed over the course of the weekend. We'll eat together Friday dinner through to Saturday evening. There will be plenty of snacks and caffeine on tap.

Is there a student discount?
Maybe... if you ask nicely! Snap a photo of your student ID / NUS card and send us a tweet (@kcodeuk) and we'll see what we can do for you.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Kingdom Code is on Facebook and Twitter, send us a message there and we'll get back to you ASAP.

Can I update my registration information?
Yes! Just log into Eventbrite and update your information.

I heard rumours of a cat...
Alas, not this year. The new venue has no church cat (maybe a few church mice though…)

Are there refunds?
Sorry, we can't do refunds, however the tickets are transferable, so feel free to pass your ticket on to someone else (just remember to update the name on the ticket).

Is there an age limit for the event?
There is no age limit for the event, however under 18's must be accompanied by a legal guardian and cannot stay overnight.

24 hours? What about sleep?
While some people will be working for the full 24 hours (caffeine provided in the ticket cost) it is certainly not expected! Don't worry you can go to sleep. We've set aside seperate rooms (including the church crypt) to put out a rollmat and catch some
