Saturday, 9 March 2019, 11:00am - 4:00pm

Join BCS Herts in association with the University of Hertfordshire for the Hertfordshire Hackathon.

Join us for the day or just pop in to learn, socialise and have fun. Whatever your skill level or background, get involved in a high focus, hands-on real-world challenge; design, code and collaborate on the Hackathon Challenge and you and your team could win a prize. Prizes and Challenges will be available to suit different interests, experience levels and abilities, with prizes being awarded across a range of categories (not just programming). If you are interested in exercising your problem-solving, design or programming skills, or if you just want to watch. Come and share your Saturday at our family friendly event.

The New Chapman Lounge is the large room adjoining the foyer at the UH Main Reception – identified in red on the Find Us page.
