Major League Hacking 2017 Hackathon Season

BUILD

SOMETHING

Join us from November 25th to November 26th 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 students from 53 univesities, 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!

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Medium. We will make more announcments on various social media as the hackathon approaches.

Applications are now open!
