DurHack 2017

9th-10th December 2017

CompSoc brought back DurHack for a second year running and it was a huge success. With Durham County Council, Barclays, TPP, .TECH Domains, Waterstons, Entrepreneurs Durham, The Keyboard Company, the Department of Computer Science and Durham Students' Union on board as sponsors, this event was jam-packed with prizes and was not a hackathon to be missed!


28th-29th January 2017

DurHack first ran in January 2017, CompSoc's first ever 24-hour hackathon sponsored by big names like Durham County Council, GitHub, MLH, Sunderland Software City, Durham Students' Union, Entrepreneurs Durham, Waterstons, Barclays, Microsoft and Durham University. With enormous data sets from in and around Durham, participants from various UK universities utilised it to produce something that can potentially make a different to the region. 24 hours of coding interspersed with workshops, games, VR, short sleep sprints and awesome food, the event was a massive success.
