What the hack is a Hackathon?
A Hackathon is a social coding event that brings together a group of people with various skills (techy and non-techy) to collaboratively create a new computer program (aka software or online application).
And guess what? We are hosting one of these cool events on the weekend 4 – 5 August 2018 at the Gold Coast Campus Library where we want you– brilliant masterminds– to design, develop and showcase a mobile application that would greatly improve your and your fellow peers’ student lives.
Who can participate?
Everyone who is passionate to work together with a bunch of cool people to create something new and amazing! You don’t need to be a coder or tech savvy to take part in the Hackathon. Although we are definitely looking for techy students to write the code, teams will also require students with marketing, graphic design, project management or any other genius skill that can contribute to creating an awesome app.
How do I register?
Simply head over to our Hackathon website to register as an individual or team. Join us for an awesome weekend full of fun, with the opportunity to meet new people, enhance your skill sets and the chance to win big! It is going to be awesome!
Registrations will be open until 5pm Friday 20 July 2018.
