Event description
About R. U. Hacking?
Reading University Hacking and Henley Business School proudly present our second annual 24-hour Student Hackathon at the University of Reading, welcoming students from all over Thames Valley, and the rest of the UK and EU!
Whether you're completely new to programming or are a seasoned hackathon veteran, you are welcome to join us in this fun and collaborative invention marathon! Bring your laptops and bright ideas, and we'll cover food, power and Wi-Fi - beginners welcome!

Frequently Asked Questions
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 and present them.
There will be a number of prizes for using specific technologies as well as the overall best project. There will be additional prize pools available exclusively to first-timers!
An increasing amount of projects coming out of Hackathons get turned into startup businesses, and we welcome students from any discipline to have their go at hacking!
To attend as a hacker, you must be in full-time education (e.g. University, college) or have finished in the past year. We have no other requirements!
We welcome attendees from all disciplines as we strongly believe Hackathon projects require skills beyond just technical - benefiting from skills such as design, entrepreneurship and overall creativity.
Your ticket, student ID, any toiletries and a laptop with its charger. Extra pair of clothes and a sleeping bag optional if you're not staying up all night - we'll have resting areas available. That's about it!
