HackSussex would like to welcome you to a society about building computer based projects. Whether you like developing apps, building websites, constructing databases or just plain programming, we are the society for you. Our primary goal is to build a community of like-minded individuals who all have one thing in common, and that is creativity on the computing front. We're open to novices and experts alike and we hope to drive forward a collective knowledge base here at Sussex.

We're generally referred to as "Hackers", but before you jump to conclusions, we're the code builders not code destroyers. We come together to construct cool programs and buld interesting code for fun or with purpose and we'd like you to join us, get involved and start building both projects you like and a community you can count on.

HackSussex hopes to bring the University of Sussex into the wider Hacker community too. Major League Hacking (MLH) is a group who try to bring together Hackers on a global scale and they often assist in hosting Hackathons. A Hackathon (like the name suggests) is a marathon of coding, where people group together for an extended peroid of time and try to build something from the ground up in a competition like setting. Not to say Hackathons are only for the competative amongst you, you're also free to go just for fun and to take part or experience the setting.

Please join the Facebook group, like/follow the Facebook or Twitter pages for information on our meet ups and events.

Hope to see you there!
