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


This year, we took over 38 Mappin Street once again - a newly reopened building nearby The Diamond with a great capacity for our event.
