Leeds Hack is the first independent hackday for the city of Leeds, the basic idea is we stick 100 people in a room, give them food, water and wifi and see what magical thing they create over the weekend.
Hackdays are a great way of unleashing creativity of teams and learning new skills, the time limited nature of the event means that you tend to focus and dive right in!
Companies are seeing the advantages of hackdays internally by scheduling them regularly and letting development + design teams work on new ideas that wouldn’t be possible within the usual development schedule.
Leeds Hack is a completely free event the only cost to you is your time and a bit of effort to make contacts and work on an idea either on your own or as part of a team.
