The official sign-up process is now closed and we have twenty-nine prospective participants who successfully applied.
Erica Gasparini from Booking.com has begun the process of organising a hotel and appropriate rooms, near the hackathon venue, that will accommodate our participants.
The organisers are now applying to various bodies for further funds in the hope that we will be able to cover the expenses of everyone who applied for sponsorship. The results of this are due to be published next week.
If you would like to sponsor the hackathon, or know of a body that is interested in sponsoring the event, please do not hesitate to contact the organisers at your earliest convenience. Visit the sponsors page for more information.
