What will the day involve?

Come along and join a team!

You can either come as a team or join a team on the day. Normal hack-day teams consist of a mix of developers & designers of any level. Don't be shy, if you have any sort of WordPress skillz then you'll fit right in!

Bring your own hack-day idea!

Got an idea for an app or a cool website? Think you can build the next big thing in WordPress? Or just want to have a good time and contribute your ideas? Come along, your satisfaction is guaranteed!

Food & Drinks included!

Your £10 ticket will cover lunch and drinks during the day. We'll also be providing snacks and treats to keep the hackers going.

Who should come?


Can you write code? Do you have mad skilz? Anyone who can wrangle things like PHP, HTML, CSS and JS should come along. Are you a n00b? Don't worry, we'll pair you with a more experienced team so you can learn from the best.

Designers & UXers

Because who wants an ugly app? We'll need people to make logo's, build mock-ups, flesh out UIs and push pixels around. Not a Photoshop native? If you are a designer of any level you'll be welcome at this hack-day.


Are you a budding entrepreneur? Do you have an idea for the next big thing? Would you like to spend the day building something awesome? Then come along. Anyone with an idea is welcome to contribute, no matter how mature the concept is.
