Over the 24 hours, people aged 14+ of all skill levels will come together to share ideas, and create new and awesome projects!

HackTheMidlands is a 24-hour, inclusive hackathon being hosted in Birmingham on the 26th - 27th October at Millennium Point.

Over the 24 hours, people aged 14+ of all skill levels (you don't have to be a professional or a student! Just be lovely, passionate and interested in tech!) will come together to share ideas, and create new and awesome projects!

It's an event for like-minded people to share what they are interested in and teach each-other what they are passionate about, whether its coding, electronics or anything else you want to know about. You never know what new skill you might pick up! You can also ask specific questions to our mentors and in the Discord server, where people are there to help.
