GUTS is a student society of hackers. We love everything to do with technology, so we host as many events as we can to bring students closer to the topics that excite them (from human centred security all the way down to the bits and bytes). Our annual hackathon and Cyber Defence Execsie events will give you the opportunity to unleash your creativity and chat to loads of industry experts, so why not come along? Check out the video about us below.
The 2017 hackathon was amazing! Students from all over the UK worked on projects all weekend including asymmetric games, making applying for student loans easier, and RESTful DOOM.
We ran our very first Hacker Olympics in September! Teams worked to complete small programming challenges, like making a program with a 42 second run time, and some fun ones, such as "make an Apple parody video".
CDX this year featured a full story, with participants working for Blue Technologies Ltd. to patch security holes in outdated technologies. We also had some awesome side events, including a defusal challenge!
