BrumHack is a 24 hour student hackathon in Birmingham, running as a hack in the Major League Hacking UK Fall Season.
Attendees have 24 hours (from 12:00 Saturday) to build something awesome, either in hardware or software. Hacks can optionally use sponsor APIs and platforms, and at the end of the 24 hour window people will have time to show either their hack, if it’s ready and working, or otherwise to talk a little about their ideas or what technology they used, what worked and what they had trouble with.
As a business, we are passionate about supporting the future of technology and it was fantastic to see so many young developers, both male and female attend the Hackathon. We provided the attendees with valuable career advice, with CV writing and Interview tips being one of their favourite topics. Hopefully we will continue to work with the local Universities in the future. If you are organising a similar event in the Midland’s then please contact either Andy or Hannah as we are always looking at new opportunities.
