Hackathon

Coding, Design, Community - Jersey Hackathon

Jersey's premiere technology competition is back and bigger than ever before!

After March's Fintech event produced a record breaking range of amazing submissions the HackJsy team have decided to build on that success by launching Septembers event with a Digital Health focus.

As before, it's a 38 hour event but this time we're looking for solutions based on all aspects of Digital health, wellness and sports, judged by a panel of industry experts with a range of prizes for winning submissions.

Spaces are limited so register now to guarantee you're a part of what is sure to go down in Jersey's digital history.

 

FAQs

Is there an age limit?

Adults (18+) are free to register in their own right.

Juniors (16+) may register but must provide a consent form signed by their parent or guardian.

Under 16s are only permitted to attend when accompanied by an adult on a 1 to 1 ratio.

 

What does it cost?

Attendance is completely free!

 

I can't do 38 hours!

That's not a problem. Of course you'll get the most out of it if you can be there as much as possible but we understand people have busy lives, families and other commitments.

Attendees are free to come and go as they please provided they spend a minimum of 12 hours at the event venue over the course of the weekend.
