Stirhack is an annual 24-hour programming hackathon which brings together people from various computing clubs and computing degrees, as well as those with non-technical degrees. Held over a weekend at Stirling University campus and completely free to attend, Stirhack is an MLH Major League Hacking partnered event, which is open to any student currently enrolled in full-time higher education, or those who graduated less than a year ago.
Working in teams of up to four people, the 2017 hackathon focused on solving a particular problem in an innovative way. Stirhack is a great opportunity to spend time working with other enthusiasts and learn from each other – and is an excellent insight into becoming a professional programmer. The project work can also be a helpful addition to students’ CVs.
