HackaSoton is a student-led community of skillful and passionate developers and tech-lovers who look for constant improvement by putting their knowledge in practice through entrepreneurial, technical and engineering competitions, conferences and events..
Our community has a very strong entrepreneurial drive and values â€“ we not only encourage engineers towards being business oriented, innovative and disruptive, but we also promote the incredible engineering culture among non-technical individuals.
Our vision consists on bridging the wide gap between technical and non-technical individuals, as for years, both literally speak completely different languages, and therefore cannot achieve an effective communication.
To achieve our vision we organize events around the UK - we have organized numerous events in Southampton including the Startup Weekend 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, the SVC2UK 2013, several RHoK's, and we have even organized events in Romania and Slovenia.
We're a group of volunteers who teach children programming and robotics through Lego Mindstorms, and aim to introduce young women to engineering. We teach workshops at local schools, as well as host a range of events to inspire and teach kids about technology. It's a fantastic initiative that's really fun and rewarding, and looks great on your CV too!
