We hosted the third installment of our Student Hackathon in the University of Sheffield, open to students across the country last October! We provided the WiFi, power, and food while teams of hackers created something new and exciting.


Last year, we took over 38 Mappin Street - a newly reopened building nearby The Diamond with a much bigger capacity.
