Lincoln 24hr Hack

More than 80 developers, experts and hacking enthusiasts from Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Manchester, Leeds, and even as far afield as Boston and Harvard USA took part in the second 24hr Lincoln Hack held at the Boole Technology Centre.

A Trump Bot, an Amazon Echo powered by lemons, hacking a server, Banana as a Service, and Kimagotchi – Kim Jong Un as a tamagotchi – were just some of the whacky ideas produced at the hack.
