What is [email protected]
Welcome to [email protected], the student run 24-hour hackathon at Oxford Brookes University. Now usually when we talk about Hackathons, the first thing people think about is that we’re ‘hacking the mainframe’, when in fact we just want to see if we can get something together fast that does something helpful. Rapid prototyping if you will. We believe in quipping people to work together as a force for good in the world, having as much fun as possible while they’re doing it! That’s why this year, we’re shifting gear. Even people living under a rock will have heard what’s going on in the world and felt the shadow over the world that is... ‘Cyber’. We’re taking the hackathon experience to another level. As well as working on your dev skills, come and find out how networks are the bare bones - where everything comes together, explore how you can make your web work that little bit tighter-knit, and say hello to Kali Linux, the ultimate hacker’s toolkit.
