Hackference 2016

21st - 23rd October 2016, Birmingham UK

Hackference is a unique event focused on Learning, Building and Sharing, bringing together over 300 attendees across 3 days and 2 venues in central Birmingham. Our attendees will get exposure to 2 tracks of fantastic talks and in-depth workshops at our conference and a valueable experience of building during the weekend over at the hackathon.

Who attends Hackference?

We're lucky at Hackference to have a diverse mixture of attendees - previous event's have had plenty of student, startup, corporate and freelance attendees from all over the skill spectrum.

The majority of our speakers are renowed on a national level - and some, international - and travel to us from all across the world. They are active on social media, and usually have a very large following as they are considered trendsetters, influencers and brand promoters.

A rough breakdown of attendees would be:

50% Student, Junior Developers and Hobbyists
30% Mid Level Developers and Designers
20% Senior Developer and Architects

Based on the languages used at the Hackathon, we can assume they are mostly Web and Mobile App Developers

Why support Hackference?

Supporting Hackference is a truely amazing way to get your company exposed to highly skilled and motivated developers and designers who are on the leading-edge of technology. In addition to helping us cover the costs of organising such an event - you are also helping us exhibit the brilliant, and sometimes, overlooked Birmingham technology scene. With your support we can provide a fantastic event to our attendees.
