Frequently Asked Questions

Any other questions? Send us a message →

Hacking? That sounds scary.

We’re not “hacking into the mainframe”, it’s being redefined as an umbrella term for coding and tinkering with computers.

I’m not very good at coding...

That’s OK! We’ll have workshops teaching you the basics of making websites, games, and more!

What should I bring?

Bring a laptop, chargers and anything else you’ll need for your hack (hardware?)!

Will food be provided?

Yes! Food and snacks will be provided throughout the event.

How much does entry cost?

Nothing at all! The event is 100% free of charge to all eligible hackers.

Do I need a team to join?

Nope! You’ll have dedicated time to meet new hackers and form teams [4 per. max] or work alone.
