R. U. Hacking? 2019

R. U. Hacking? 2019

Learn, Build, Share!

February 16-17 (Sat-Sun), 2019

We are a student-led technology society based here at the University of Reading. We are driven to provide exciting opportunities for our members to build their skills as well as a professional network. Our events are the perfect opportunity for both newcomers and seasoned techies alike to collaborate & learn, facilitated by our support and resources.

About our Hackathons

What is a Hackathon anyway?

A Hackathon is a programming marathon, where teams of 2-4 put their ideas together to create something exciting in only 24 hours. It gives teams of hackers a chance to turn their ideas into reality and present them.

There will be a number of prizes for using specific technologies as well as the overall best project. There will be additional prize pools available exclusively to first-timers!

Can I attend?

To attend as a hacker, you must be in full-time education (e.g. University, college) or have finished in the past year. We have no other requirements!

We welcome attendees from all disciplines as we strongly believe Hackathon projects require skills beyond just technical - benefiting from skills such as design, entrepreneurship and overall creativity.

Upcoming Events

R. U. Hacking? works hard to provide our members with strong links to local industry leaders, that's why we actively seek industry partners to come and provide talks and workshops at our events. This offers an excellent platform for our students to create ties with businesses while at University and get a good foothold for when looking for placements.
