About this event

Taking place between 22 - 25 June 2021 and open to students and recent graduates at all higher education institutions. See the programme below (speakers to be announced in due course).

Five ‘post-COVID' challenges will be announced on Day 1 for teams to select from – these will focus on:

  1. Medical Supply Chains
  2. Mobile Ecommerce
  3. Money Transfer
  4. Telemedicine

Hacking is where teams of 3-5 individuals come together over to creatively solve problems. Training and support workshops will run parallel to the Hackathon, providing useful skills development and insight into the challenges set.

The Hackathon will build essential skills for students in developing business and consumer solutions across Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Blockchain, Natural Language Processing, APIs, Cloud, Mobile, Data Analytics, Internet of Things, Robotics Process Automation and other in-demand non-tech skills such as project management, leadership, teamwork and communication. Newcomers and more experienced ‘hackers’ are welcome!

  • Business Analysts
  • Data Analyst/Scientists
  • Application Designers/Architects
  • Hackathon Mentors
