Overview

We are excited to announce that we are running Summer Hack again this year — a week-long team programming competition for young people of secondary school age (aged 12 and over).

Register now: Please complete this registration form and we will get back to you soon.

The Summer Hack will take place 10:00 am – 4:00 pm every day, July 22nd–26th 2019 at CodeBase Events Space, 38 Castle Terrace, Edinburgh EH3 9SJ.

  • What is involved? You will be working in a small team, collaborating on a small project.
  • Will there be prizes? Yes. At the end of the week, each team will give a demo of their project, and prizes will be awarded in various categories.
  • Do you need to bring a laptop? Not necessarily — we can provide one.
  • What about food? We will provide snacks but you will need to bring your own lunch.

Because you will be working as a member of a team, you must commit to attending every day of the Summer Hack.
