A 24-hours student hackathon spanning over two exciting days.

The Aston Computer Science Society is launching AstonHack, a student Hackathon to form part of the annual Major League Hacking (MLH) league. 

What is an MLH Hackathon?

A Hackathon is an event that typically lasts several days, in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming.

Major League Hacking is the official student hackathon league - holding over 150 weekend long hackathons across the US, Canada, Mexico and Europe. MLH's mission is to spread the hacker ethos to every student on the planet; to cultivate communities where aspiring hackers have the opportunity to learn, build, and share their creations with the world.

Eligibility

MLH events are free for student hackers aged 18+ participating in teams from 1 to 4 on innovative solutions to real-world problems.

Anybody who has graduated in the past 6 months is also considered a student and thus can attend. Those of you who graduated more than 6 months ago should email us at info@astonhack.co.uk and we will consider your application on an individual basis.

Please make sure you carry your student ID card, and any official ID to show that you're over 18. If you're not over 18 you cannot stay the night and will have to make arrangements to return to your usual accommodation.
