UNIHACK: A Melbourne Hackathon For Uni & TAFE Students

Our mate Terence Huynh from TechGeek has been busy, launching his new project UNIHACK in collaboration with CISSA and Wired Monash:

UNIHACK is a student-orientated hackathon in Melbourne, organised by the I.T. student clubs from the University of Melbourne and Monash University, Clayton.

Looks like a fantastic initiative, held in August at no less than Melbourne’s premiere co-working space the York Butter Factory. The winners also get access to the PwC Technology Academy, a prize that would certainly make it worth your while to participate.

What also impressed me was the killer lineup of sponsors they’ve got to support the project. KPMG, Omny, Freelancer.com, Mashery, PwC and Github (Terence also tells me Deloitte and Readify are on board too). Holy smokes!

Tons of startups get their genesis at a hackathon, so if you’re at uni or TAFE now, here’s an awesome chance to bash out an idea in 24 hours and meet some like-minded people. Registration is now open — if you’re eligible, you’d be nuts not to do it.
