HackKings: London Hackathon


The King’s College London Tech Society is a new student-led society for people interested in technology.   They are organizing the first 24-hour Hackathon at a London university, for Saturday-Sunday 22-23 February 2014, and this will be the largest student-run hackathon in Britain.    Already major sponsors such as Facebook and CodeAcademy are offering prizes for participants.

To prepare participants, the Tech Society is also running Teach-Me-X sessions, Monday evening lectures on relevant skills.  The first session was last Monday 27 January on Ruby-on-Rails, led by Tech Society co-founder, Niklas Begley.   As good programmers know, the quality of the code depends crucially on the quantity of pizza available.   So the Department of Informatics at KCL was delighted to support this initiative by providing pizza for the session!
