The biggest Annual Hackathon in Brighton & Hove!

HackSussex runs a weekend-long hackathon annually on Sussex campus. The hackathon is an event where passionate programmers and designers from all across the country come down to build the best tech inventions and solutions they can in just 24 hours, with many prizes for the winning teams.

This is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy yourself, boost your CV, and above all learn something new. Be it tech and software skills or teamwork experience. There's room for both the competitive and the laid back, and a chance for people of any level of experience to win prizes. The event is entirely free and paid for by our lovely sponsors.
