Tickets: https://ti.to/code-the-city/ctc27

This event has the broad theme of Education.  This is a broad area and can be interpreted in any way that attendees wish. For example, it could refer to 

  • formal or informal education; 
  • to primary, secondary or higher / further education; 
  • to a specific area such as the teaching of computer science; 
  • or to the gathering and analysing of open data on educational attainment;
  • or any other relevant idea you might have. 

We’re drawing up a list of proposed projects which will be tackled over the weekend. Have a look – and please add your suggestions too. 

If you have never been to a hackathon before or are interested in knowing more about the projects previously tackled then please check out our hackathon overview page.

By signing up for this hack weekend, you agree to our Code Of Conduct

Who should attend?

Anyone! Despite our name, coding is a small bit of what we do. It’s essential that we have subject area specialists. In this case that might be teachers, university or college lecturers, pupils, students and those who work in policy. And those who have less formal roles too.

Of course, coders, data wranglers, designers and other techies are important to a hack weekend.

Once we have some challenges posed, we’ll create projects and teams to work on them over the weekend.

Tickets

As a charity we aim to encourage all to attend our events – and to make the barrier to attendance as low as we can make it. We also have to consider our costs of administration. So our standard tickets are just £5 for the weekend. 

If this is a barrier to you attending please get in touch and we can issue you with a ticket at no cost, no questions asked.
