Welcome to the first-ever digital hackathon by Oxford Hack! Before the annual hackathon in November, we really hope to keep you enthusiastic hackers entertained during this special quarantine time. Grab some mates, get your favourite online working app and create something cool together in 24 hours!

Oxford Digithon is an inclusive and encouraging event, providing a unique opportunity to hone your skills in any technical field you like. We don’t impose any restrictions on the product your team makes, so you can be as experimental and disciplined as you like. We’ve got some wonderful sponsors, who’ll be arranging their own prize categories and workshops.
