Join Our Online Hackathon Today!

Due to the corona virus and the strict restrictions placed on social interactions, a new approach must be taken regarding our annual overnight hackathon. The hackathon will be held solely online, with all the participants taking part from the safety and comfort of their homes.

As an added bonus we have made the hackathon so inclusive that participants don’t even need any coding skills!


How it will work

  • It will take place exclusively online
  • Participants are free to develop ideas & projects of their choosing
  • Zoom will be used as a communication platform for teams
  • We will make use of videoconferencing for live updates, check-ins and Q&A sessions
  • We will use of our ICT personnel to assist each individual team
  • Participants can enter as individuals or as teams of up to 3 members (max.)
  • Hackathon will have 2 sprint targets: the first will be an idea pitch from teams on their proposed solution and the second will be the design and development of a prototype for their proposed solution
  • There will be an open Zoom call where facilitators will be available to answer questions and aid between certain hours
  • There will also be breakaway rooms to assist teams
