Questions people usually have.

What's a hackathon?

Hackathons are 'invention marathons', where people build & share their creations over the course of a weekend in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

Do I have to study Computer Science?

Nope! You don't have even have to know how to program, though it is obviously helpful.

Can you reimburse travel expenses?

Unfortunately, this isn't in our budget :(

Who can attend?

Any student aged 18+ and currently enrolled on a university degree programme can attend.

How much does it cost?

0, nothing, null, void. Royal Hackaway is free to attend with everything provided by our super sponsors!

What's the deal with food?

We'll provide you with food across the weekend free of charge. Please make sure you let us know of any dietary requirements.

Can I stay overnight?

You'll be able to work overnight in the venue. A relaxation area will be available for you to crash in.

Who owns my project?

You and your team own anything you create. Why not make it open source, on GitHub?

Can I start before I arrive?

While you can explore ideas, you cannot write a line of code for your project before the event itself.

What shall I bring?

Bring your laptop, charger(s) and any other devices you wish to work on at the hackathon. Don't forget to bring valid student ID.
