Web Applications UK is pleased to announce that we will be sponsoring Hack Manchester.

Hack Manchester is a 24 hour coding competition to be held at the Museum of Science and Industry during the Manchester Science Festival on 27th and 28th October 2012. Teams of up to 4 turn up with an idea and just one day later present a working product. Not too dissimilar to our Genius Days at Web Applications!

The event aims to showcase the thriving tech community in Manchester and the North West. This year will be a first for the Manchester event but the format is tried and tested. The organisers met at Leeds Hack and decided that Manchester needed to get in on the action.

The attendees will turn up on the Saturday to mingle and watch the introduction before the hacking begins. The hacks can be absolutely anything but they only have 24 hours to submit something to the judges.

At the end of the weekend, there will be an awards ceremony where the teams present their hacks to the judges and prizes are given out. The number of participants will be limited to 250 developers but extra tickets will be available for the awards ceremony. So if you want to take part or see what the teams are able to produce in just 24 hours register your interest here.
