HackNotts is a 24 hour Hackathon hosted at the University of Nottingham. In October this year we will be returning for our fourth year! Join us for a weekend of hacking and fun in the stunning Jubilee Campus.

But what is going to happen at the event?

Over the 24 hours, people aged 16+ of all skill levels (you don't have to be a professional or a student! Just be lovely, passionate and interested in tech!) will come together to share ideas, and create new and awesome projects! (Not sure what a hackathon is? MLH have a great explanation here). There'll also be fun minigames, challenges and free food/drink to make sure you have an absolutely wonderful time.

What should I bring?

Apart from yourself, you will also need to bring laptops, chargers and some spare clothes if you want to sleep.

Please note that all attendees will be subject to the MLH Code of Conduct. For more information about the event - see our website
