Join us from November 25th to November 26th at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford for the third edition of OxfordHack. This year, at the oldest university in the English-speaking world, hackers from around the world will be pushing the boundaries of technology to new limits.

Last year, we brought together over 300 coders from 53 universities, to create everything from a robot that fights unhappy people, to online whiteboards with LaTeX support. Make sure to check out last year’s hackathon, photos, and submissions!
