Lincoln Hack is a 24 hour coding competition held at Boole Technology Centre in Lincoln. Teams of up to four people compete for some fantastic prizes by starting with an idea and building it into something. Hardware hacks, software hacks, API mashups, funny things, arty things, noisy things… whatever you decide to create, you’ve got 24 hours to do it!
We will feed you and look after your essential needs: Wi-Fi and power. Your job is to come up with the next big thing.
Can I choose my team?
Yes. You can team up with friends, or other hackers on the day. You can also hack solo. Only one prize per team member per challenge. Each challenge has a maximum of four prizes. A Maximum of 4 members per team (you can have more than 4 – but there are only 4 prizes…)

Who owns my hack?
