Queen's University Belfast Development Weeks Event
HackBelfast an invention competition where participants dream up ideas that they then bring to life over the course of a 24 hour period. This can be anything from websites to mobile apps to robots. Participants then demo their project to a panel of judges to determine a winner. We are currently collaborating with the QUB Careers service to acquire event sponsorship, to provide food and expertise on the day. Industry experts will be acting as judges, mentors and to provide talks/workshops during the event to help support and develop your ideas. The judging criteria will focus on technicality, usefulness, creativity and polish. The event is targeted at students from all faculties backgrounds, not just those from computing disciplines. We’re also currently exploring the event being recognised and supported by the Major League Hacking organisation.
