StudentHack is an all-inclusive, free and fun programming event for students in Manchester. Turns out it is run by students too.
StudentHack is back in its 4th edition and promising to deliver an epic event where you will learn and build awesomest hacks, by working together with the team behind GreatUniHack, we have opened for first time ever to accept Under 18 participants!
Attendees will have 38 hours (from 19:00 Friday) to build something awesome, either in hardware or software.
There will be workshops to get you going with various technology such as: iOS development, Rapserbi, Python, etc... and inspiration tech talk from successful companies such as Bloomberg.
Hackers can optionally use sponsor APIs and platforms, and at the end of the 38 hour window people will have time to show either their hack, if it’s ready and working, or otherwise to talk a little about their ideasor what technology they used, what worked and what they had trouble with.
We will be providing hardware for attendees and cool gadget to hack on!
Drones, Oculus rifts, Eye trackers, leap motions, myus armbands, muse headband, arduinous, edisons, and many more! i
Hacks can be made alone or in teams of any size, but teams bigger than 4 people won't qualify for prizes. Teams can be decided at any point before submission and we’ll be having a session for matching up teams before we start, so if you’re unsure of who to work with, don’t be deterred.
The event is free for attendees & we’ll have food and refreshments paid for by sponsors, as well as prizes for various categories of hacks.
