Join us from November 25th to November 26th at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford for the third edition of OxfordHack. This year, at the oldest university in the English-speaking world, hackers from around the world will be pushing the boundaries of technology to new limits.
Last year, we brought together over 300 coders from 53 universities, to create everything from a robot that fights unhappy people, to online whiteboards with LaTeX support. Make sure to check out last year's hackathon, photos, and submissions!
Hackathons are essentially creativity marathons. Thoughts become things. Attendees work in teams of up to four people to create a hack, be it a webapp, hardware or something completely different.
No need to worry! Part of the fun of a hackathon is meeting new people. We will have time at the beginning of the event for everyone to meet and form teams.
All attendees must bring a valid ID of admission. Other common checklist items include: laptops, sleeping bags, chargers, and toiletries.
Web, mobile, hardware, anything! Projects will be judged based on creativity, technical difficulty, polish and usefulness by a panel of industry judges. The IP of your projects will remain with you
OxfordHack is free for all accepted hackers. We provide WiFi, meals, swag, and the workspace. We also have a limited number of travel scholarships if you're traveling from outside of Oxford which you can apply for here and will be considered on a case by case basis (only travel costs will be considered and application does not guarantee reimbursement)
Coders from all around the world can attend. You have to be 16 or older to attend. If you are under 18, your parents will be required to sign a consent form we will send to you.
Teams of up to four are welcome. You can also hack solo if you want!
Yes. tl;dr: Be nice to each other.
By attending the event you are agreeing to having pictures and videos be taken with you in them.
Your CV might be passed onto our sponsors.
