Event description

Description

Hello everyone, we're happy to announce our biggest event of the year, the UQCS hackathon, will be on August 31st - September 2nd.

If you aren't familiar with how the UQCS hackathon works, it's pretty simple:

  1. Form your team
  2. Build something cool
  3. Present what you have made
  4. Win prizes

In the past people have built websites, desktop apps, games, hardware, and robots and if you've never been to a hackathon before, don't worry as we'll be running a talk beforehand walking through what to do at your first hackathon.

In terms of awards and prizes, here's what's up for grabs!

Best Overall - $1000 (Sponsored by Technology One)

Awarded to the best overall project in the hackathon. Projects will be judged based on their Complexity, Creativity and Coolness.

Best Newcomers - $400
Awarded to the best project created by a team consisting of only first/second year students, following the same criteria as best overall.

Best Design - $400
Awarded to the project with the best design.

People’s Choice - $400
Awarded to the project which is voted highest by hackathon attendees.

The hackathon is free for students, and $30 for others ($20 for early bird). As usual, we will be supplying lunch and dinner during the hackathon too so make sure to mark yourselves down on our eventbrite so we can know how many people to cater for. See you there!
