HackSussex is the society behind the annual weekend-long yearly hackathon at Sussex, an event where coders and designers from all across the country come down to compete in teams to build the best tech solutions they can in just 24 straight hours, with many prizes for the winning teams at the end, from both us and our sponsors (last year we were partnered with Rolls Royce). This is a fantastic event to both enjoy yourself, boost your CV and above all learn something new, be it tech related, or about working in a team. There's room for the competitive and the laid back, and a chance for people of any level of experience to win prizes!

More than that though, we also hold society events and workshops every week to both chill with other tech enthusiasts and learn, so no matter your technical skill, come along! Our 'code jams' are social orientated nights where we hang out, work on any of our programming projects and get help from one another, all with free snacks! Our workshops are student led introductions to different tech topics. We've run workshops on things like game design, blockchain and will have many more this term.

HackSussex is more than just 'the computer science society'! We actively encourage people of any subject to attend both our society nights and our hackathon, so if you've ever had the urge to pick up some technical skills while meeting some new friends, this is the place to be!

Please join the Facebook group, like/follow the Facebook event or Twitter page (coming soon) for information on our meet ups and events.

Hope to see you there!
