A WEEKEND HACK DAY
Not an overnight event, but all day Saturday and Sunday with a fun social event in between – Pitch and idea or join a team to work on it over the course of the weekend
FREE TO ATTEND
Tickets are and always will be free and we’ll lay on free lunch and refreshments during the day.
JUDGES AND PRIZES
We’ll invite credible judges from a range of backgrounds to award prizes.
Hack Days are a fun way to brainstorm collaboratively and come up with quick solutions. Making actual “products” isn’t necessarily the aim; it’s about having a great time, learning something and meeting some brilliant people. The main advantage of Hack Days is having people with a wide range of skills all in the same room and working together, something which may not be acheived quite so explicitly during day jobs in software development.
What makes NHS Hack Days different is that we are committed to welcoming people who don’t necessarily have computer skills to our events. We want everyone with any interest whatsoever in healthcare technology: healthcare professionals, patients and their relatives, representatives from charities, and anyone else who wants to help out, or even just to see what we’re doing. Notably a career researcher in chemistry came along to one of our recent events by accident thinking it was a day of lectures, but he was persuaded to stay anyway and ended up being part of the winning team!
