HackaSoton is a student-led community of skillful and passionate developers and tech-lovers who look for constant improvement by putting their knowledge in practice through entrepreneurial, technical and engineering competitions, conferences and events..
Our community has a very strong entrepreneurial drive and values â€“ we not only encourage engineers towards being business oriented, innovative and disruptive, but we also promote the incredible engineering culture among non-technical individuals.
Our vision consists on bridging the wide gap between technical and non-technical individuals, as for years, both literally speak completely different languages, and therefore cannot achieve an effective communication.
To achieve our vision we organize events around the UK - we have organized numerous events in Southampton including the Startup Weekend 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015, the SVC2UK 2013, several RHoK's, and we have even organized events in Romania and Slovenia.
These are the current membership plans offered by HackaSoton, although many groups offer a free period for new members to try out their group.
Year Membership (£5) HackaSoton is a society that certainly gives more than it takes from its members. We want to provide our members with the best Hackathon experience. To do this we attract high-profile sponsors to help us financially but also give our members the opportunity to get in to the corporate world.
We decided to charge a membership fee in exchange for some extra benefits.

â€¢ Free entrance to all our events.
