HackManchester 2018

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2018.

Eat, sleep, code, repeat. HackManchester is the UK’s only 25 hour, and most caffeine-fuelled, annual coding competition. Pick your team, chug a coffee and go head to head with big businesses and their fiendishly difficult challenges. Push yourself to the limit and show the world your coding prowess. Impress the judges to win amazing prizes and coveted trophies.
