2017 edition of the annual SotonHack.

Mighty Hackers and Computer Enthusiasts, the time has come to prove your worth in bringing the World to "Build 2.0". It is the moment that all HackaSotoners have been waiting for since the beginning of this academic year!

With no further introductions, HackaSoton and ECS Entrepreneurs are inviting you to our first big hackathon of the year: SotonHack - Build 2.0!

We're calling out for people with ingenious or "brand-new" (business) ideas to come over and pinch them in front of ANY interested programmers and web developers! The teams you will be forming together will have up to 48 straight hours to complete the project and show us what you're made of! It's important to mention that people with no prior coding experience managed to deliver awesome results in the past hackathons, so "Don't be shy and try the pie"!

Did anyone say "pie"? Well, since "hacking" the World is not an easy job and we all know that our fearless HackaSotoners need "energy boosters" from time to time, FOOD and REFRESHMENTS will be provided throughout the Weekend, as always!

We are very excited about this and we are expecting to see some amazing products by the end of this hackathon!
