Student Hack is fast growing “student only” Hackathon based in Manchester. The hack is in its fifth year and continues to grow & grow in popularity with students coming from around Europe to enter.

The Student Hack V event was last week and Cake were proud to be a Gold sponsor, we rocked up with our Mini-Event and the Challenge and were amazed at the results of the weekend, here is our summary of the weekend.

GoPiGo mini event, well this little robot turned out to be heavily affected by the environment, the naughty little tyke. Carpets affected top speed, distance travelled & overall grip on the surface, however it was still a success and a nice distraction from the main Hack. Great work & superb use of the replacement rule to ensure time penalties were kept to a minimum. Well done to Cameron for winning the challenge!

Hi there from Cake!

Life here at Cake is not only about project related work but also doing outside of those projects more of what we love - TO CODE
So if you are interested in reading a mildly philosophical and technical blog about our experience with Hackathons and some related tips then please read on. We hope you enjoy reading.

As you can imagine most of the people here at Cake are very passionate about programming and so if we can try something new, have fun and maybe even win something that's definitely time well spent. We have participated in both local public and private company Hackathons, and have been regular participants of Hack Manchester for the past 3 years.
