What's DurHack?

DurHack is a 24-hour hackathon aiming to push the boundaries of technology to new limits.

We provide you with...


Can I attend?

Yes! Anybody who is over 18 and a current registered student (or has graduated in the last 12 months) can attend.

DurHack aims to be very welcoming and beginner-friendly, so there are a few things that don't matter:

It doesn't matter what degree you study.
It doesn't matter whether you've programmed before.
It doesn't matter if you haven't got a team.

All that matters is that you have a passion for technology and for learning something new!
