ABOUT THE EVENT

We’re excited to announce the official launch for AstonHack7.

Our Hackathon will run from the 11th to 12th of December and will be an enjoyable, creative and inspiring experience for hackers and organizers alike

Hackathons are invention marathons where attendees dream up and bring to life ideas for apps, websites, robots, and more.We are inviting students to join us for 24 hours while we develop the ideas for the future!

Whether you’re just getting started or you’ve been programming for years, hackathons are a great place to learn new skills, build your network, find jobs, and most importantly have fun.

F.A.Q

  • Yes, AstonHack7 will be hosted in the Aston University main building

    AstonHack is offering 3 tiered sponsorship packages - Gold, Silver and Bronze. Your organisation would provide some combination of funding, tools, data, challenges with prizes, or API access to the value of the relevant tier.

  • We are the Aston Computer Science Society (ACSS). Coordinated by students powered with their excitement in tech, we welcome all to learn, share and have fun with computer science.

    AstonHack is presented in association with the ACSS - by students, for students.

  • A hackathon is where teams of up to 4 people work together to build an invention over a 24 hour period. Sponsors present themes for which prizes will be awarded and at the end of the event where teams will present their work to the judges.

    The goal of a hackathon is to create functioning software or hardware by the end of the event. Hackathons tend to have a specific focus, which can include the programming language used, the operating system, an application, an API, or the subject and the demographic group of the programmers.

    Whether you’re just getting started or you’ve been programming for years, hackathons are a great place to learn new skills, build your network, find jobs, and most importantly have fun.

  • There is no admission fee as it is available at no charge to any attendee.

  • Yes! To get involved, please read our volunteer booklet and sign up here.
