CodeBrew is a hackathon run by students, for students! Specifically, CodeBrew is a hackathon with a focus on giving back, hence our tagline, "The Community Hackathon".
A hackathon is an event in which coders and designers get together and spend ~24 to 48 hours hacking to create a prototype that is to be presented to a panel of judges. CodeBrew is 30 hours of coding. So essentially, a hackathon is a fun-filled weekend of coding and prototyping. A code-fest!
Yes indeed it is a long time, but it goes super quickly on the day! You're welcome to stay overnight or go home and come back in the morning. We encourage you to decide this as a team before the day so that you can be prepared.
Meet like-minded students, network with industry leaders, give yourself an edge when applying for internships and grad jobs, get free swag, win prizes and make a difference! With so much to offer, why wouldn't you attend?!
CodeBrew is run by students in the committee of CISSA - the Computing and Information Systems Students Association at the University of Melbourne.
CISSA is a non-for-profit association. To run large events like CodeBrew we need funding to cover expenses of the hackathon. The cost of your ticket covers: finger food on the Friday, breakfast, lunch and dinner on the Saturday and Sunday, #codebrew19 t-shirts and more!
