We are still in high spirits after the incredible success of our recent Hackathon! 🚀 Despite the challenges of rain and train strikes, our tech enthusiasts from Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester, Essex, London, Coventry, Leicester, and Wolverhampton united for a day of innovation and collaboration.
🤝 The atmosphere at the event was simply electric! Attendees eagerly seized the opportunity to meet and connect with like-minded individuals in the tech industry. We witnessed a diverse group of hackers, including men, women, and talented youngsters aged 12 to 50+, showcasing their skills and sharing their backgrounds.
🏢 Our heartfelt gratitude goes to STEAMhouse Pre-incubator for providing an ideal environment for creativity and teamwork. Throughout the event, attendees demonstrated their commitment to learning and growth, with some experiencing their first-ever hackathon!

🌐 The connections formed during the hackathon didn’t end there! We loved seeing attendees eagerly sharing their LinkedIn profiles and staying connected on social media, nurturing a supportive network for further growth in the tech industry.
💡 The hackathon showcased the incredible potential of user-centric development. Our teams worked diligently to address the challenge of providing personalised haircare suggestions. While they faced some hurdles in implementing their solutions, the efforts were evident.
