About this event
Registrations for our global online hackathon are now open 🌏
You can register for the hack now, either as a team or as an individual! If you don’t have a team don’t worry, you can find one on our Discord Server 👾
🤔 Why join our hackathon?
- Compete for the chance to win our £5,000 main prize, as well as our sub-category prizes 🤑
- We’ll have some awesome workshops in the build-up to the hack, and experienced mentors over the weekend to help guide you through 💡
- Either compete in a team with your friends, or join a team and make new ones! We’re a bit biased, but a hack is a great way to engage with people 😎
💻 When and where
⏰ The hack will get underway on Friday July 16th at 18:00 BST with our intro session on YouTube live. We’ll give you the full brief, judging criteria and everything you need to start the 48-hour hack!
👾 As it’s online, we’ll run the event through our Discord Server with mentorship and breakout sessions available throughout the weekend. You’ll receive updates via email and the link to join our Discord once you’ve registered, so check your junk if you don’t have anything!
🚀 What you’ll have to do
All will be revealed in our intro session 👀👀 we don’t want anyone getting a headstart so we’re keeping our lips sealed. All you need to do is sign-up, and start thinking about an idea that could help Level-Up Society.
Do I have to be a student to take part? No! The hack is open to anyone over the age of 18
What if I don’t have a team? Don’t worry! There are lots of registrants who don’t have a team from the very beginning. You’ll be able to find and chat to others who are looking for a team on our Discord server
Do I need experience to take part? Nope – everyone is encouraged to take part, regardless of experience or ability! Practice makes perfect
How big should a team be? Teams can be between 2 – 5 people
