StudentHack is an all-inclusive, free and fun programming event for students in Manchester. Turns out it's run by students too.
StudentHack is back in its 5th edition and promises to deliver an epic event where students attending will learn and build awesome hacks, by working together with the team behind GreatUniHack.
We want to make this the best edition so far. More than that, we want it to be the largest, most awesome student-led hackathon in the UK - but for that we need your help! The funds raised will go towards buying food, drinks, personalized goodies, prizes and much more - everything that makes it possible for this event to be awesome and free of charge for all participants.
Founded in 2012 by Bilawal Hameed, StudentHack is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to running hackathons where students can collaborate with likeminded talented people along with a industry expert.
In May 2013, Microsoft and Ampersand Commerce co-headlined our first pilot hackathon in Manchester, UK. More than 50 people attended and built impressive products over a single weekend.
In Feb 2014, AutoTrader and Capital One co-headlined our second hackathon in Manchester, UK. This time over 150 people attended from all over the country and internationally. We introduced our first ever trophy and became even more epic.
In November 2014, we ran our third hackathon in Halloween fashion. 200 students came from all around Europe to learn, build and share. It is also the first time we worked together with Major League Hacking to provide a more inclusive event for everyone involved.
This year, at its fifth edition, StudentHack will have over 400 participants, and we already have applications from students coming from three continents.
