About this event

We are proud to be joining the Edinburgh University Hoppers Society as they celebrate their 15th birthday!

We offer a full day of fantastic activities enabling you to meet inspiring people and learn new skills. This year’s theme, "Reach for the Stars", invites you to imagine a world without limitations and acknowledge the importance of not giving up.

We have many opportunities to win amazing prizes and network with top-tier tech companies. Join our poster session (poster submission below!) for a chance to present the work you are most proud of to your peers, potential collaborators, and future employees, or ace our discussion round and learn more about future tech challenges.

The event is free and open for everyone - students, non-students, university staff, professionals (no matter the gender!)... you just need to register! ->> https://bit.ly/31NwTpf
