R. U. Hacking?

R. U. Hacking?

Create. Invent. Hack

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?

Hackathons are events where people from multiple disciplines can team up to create a quick and demonstrable version of their project. The teams compete to see which project will be deemed the best by experts in the industry and can win prizes! Hackathons are often themed around a certain topic, but can often be free-form! Our society aims to provide some mini-hacks and similar events throughout the year with our big 24-hour Hackathon being held in February, 2019.

What will the events be like?

Building from our Hackathon last year, we're aiming to put our Alumni prize award towards equipping our hardware lab for Hackathon attendees to make use of. Some of the hardware will include low-power microcontrollers and potentially some Virtual Reality equipment! Last year's event had some very solid entries, to the point where it was difficult to choose the overall best, so definitely come down and make something you can boast about on your CV!

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.
