MLH Local Hack Day is a 12 hour hack day on the campus that brings together the local hacker community to celebrate building awesome technology. On 2 December 2017, students around the world will be simultaneously hosting their own MLH Local Hack Day at their school, resulting in the single largest day of student hacking ever.

Our Local Hack Day at the University of Plymouth is intended to be very chilled out and accessible, so whether you're a seasoned hackathon veteran or have never been to a hackathon before, there will be experts on hand to give you advice and help with your projects. 

Come along to experiment, build, create, and solve problems. Get ready to make something new!

Who can participate?

This event is ideal for first year University students on Computing or Engineering related courses to come and participate in. If you're new to coding, that's not a problem. You can form teams and you can use prototyping apps. Industry experts will be on hand to help.
