The University of Cambridge's official Hackathon

   

Not twice, but three times.

Not 2D, but 3D.

Not binary, but ternary.

From the 20th to the 21st of January 2018, Cambridge University’s annual hackathon will yet again bring together 300 hackers, programmers, designers and more from universities all over the world.
For 24 hours they will build, break and innovate to produce projects that push the boundaries of technology.

Judging Criteria

  • Innovation
    At Hack Cambridge, we love to see things that we've never seen before. Whether it's a new use of an existing technology or maybe something entirely new, we want to see something that breaks boundaries.
  • Technical Excellence
    Good projects don't just materialize out of thin air. They require hard work and dedication and we want to see you really stretch the limits of what you are capable of.
  • Polish
    Getting a project completed in time for a hackathon deadline can be a real scramble. However, we want to see something that's slick and well polished. If it weren't for the context, you would think it would have taken weeks or even months to build!
