What is Hack Your Future?

Hack Your Future will be made up of a set of challenges that you and your team work to complete. Each of the Challenges has a set amount of points. Completing challenges earns more points for you and your team. The team with the most points at the end of the event wins.

What kind of challenges will there be?

There will be a mix of challenges of varying difficulties. Some will be focussed around career development, tech skills and a few silly ones just for fun.

What should I bring?

All participants will need to bring their laptop, charger(s) and any other devices they wish to work on.

How much does it cost?

We want to make this event accessible for everyone, so there is no charge to enter. To make this possible, we need sponsorship. If you are interested in supporting, please get in touch.

Who is this event for?

Anyone! You do not need to be a student to attend this event. We will work to ensure that there is a diverse range of people, and this includes academic status.

Who is running this event?

This event is run by Hacksmiths - the student-run tech society at Goldsmiths.

Do I need a team?

You don’t need a team to take part; it’s perfectly acceptable to create a solo project. However, during the event itself, there will be opportunities to share ideas and connect with your fellow hackers to form a team. As organisers, we’ll do our best to encourage and facilitate teamwork across the weekend.

What's the deal with food?

Snacks will be provided at the event. All dietary requirements will be considered and catered for - please make sure you provide this information upon registering.

Is there a Code of Conduct?

Yes, and you must agree to it before attending. You can find it here.

Can I come if I'm under 18?

Not to this one, sorry.
