RGU Hack 2020

RGU Hack 2020
Saturday 22 February 2020
10am - 4pm
Sir Ian Wood Building

Robert Gordon University's annual hackathon is an all-inclusive codefest and free event organised by students for students. It is not a cybersecurity event and it is open to every student, not just computing!

When & Where? From Saturday 22nd at 10:00 to Sunday 23rd February at 16:00. Held at the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, in the atrium of the Sir Ian Wood Building.

Your goal: code something awesome in just 24 hours. There will be workshops for learning new skills, games, free food & drinks, swag and tech to use.

The event is beginner friendly, suitable for first years to postgraduates, as it's all about learning something new, having fun and working together. There are mentors on hand to help make your ideas a reality. You will only need a laptop and charger, if you don't have one, get in touch and we'll see what we can arrange.

This year will be even bigger and we are offering travel reimbursements to make it easier for those who want to attend from further across Scotland to participate!
