TO SHOW YOUR INTEREST

A first-of-its-kind event in Birmingham starts on August 30th, collecting 300 developers to look into different technologies, languages and best practices available in the development world. The team at Hackference will be bringing you internationally renowned developers to share their knowledge on a wide range of subjects covering different areas of coding and development.

After the conference a whole weekend of coding is afoot (August 31th and September 1st). That means 100 developers gathering together to build some great applications on different platforms in under 36 hours. With access to the knowledge gained at the conference and the APIs and SDKs of the hackathon providers, who will walk away with the prizes?
