What's a hackathon?

A hackathon is a programming marathon, where teams of 2-4 put their ideas together to create something exciting in only 24 hours. It gives teams of hackers a chance to turn their ideas into reality.

How will this year's hackathon be run?

Due to COVID-19, we will be running hackSheffield 6 digitally, meaning it will be more accessible than ever!
