SPECIAL EVENT: Oxford Hack 2022

Gaming picture

Oxford Hack is the official Oxford student Hackathon, where over 300 people gather every year to collaborate, innovate, learn and experiment while creating a project from scratch in 24 hours. We give you all the resources you need, from hardware and APIs to workshops, sponsors and volunteers who can help you with whatever questions you might have. In a few words, you attend to have fun, learn things you didn’t even know existed and see your ideas come to life. This year we are back IN-PERSON - for more information about what is going to change, check out the Event section or the FAQs.

This event is partnered with Major League Hacking.
We’ll be following MLH’s Code of Conduct, which you can find here.

When: Saturday 12th - Sunday 13th November

Where: Maths Institute, University of Oxford Andrew Wiles Building, Woodstock Rd, Oxford OX2 6GG

Oxford Hackathon Call For Volunteers

Gaming picture

A message from Ahsan (07311449084 / facebook.com/anglypascal / linkedin.com/in/ahsanalmahir ): Hey everyone, I'm on the committee for this year's Oxford Hackathon, which will happen on the 12th and 13th of November (next weekend). We're looking for volunteers to help us with logistics on the day of the event. We will have free food (2 lunches, 1 dinner, and snacks all the way through), and you'll also get to meet our sponsors if you're interested in that. If anyone is interested please DM me!

Check out OxWoCS!

Make sure to join OxWoCS (Oxford Women in CS), a society we're working closely with, if you identify as a woman or woman-adjacent person in CS! They have a host of wonderful events on, including talks, panels and socials. Computer Science is unfortunately a subject with one of the biggest gender gaps in Oxford and worldwide, and addressing this is at the core of OxWoCS.
