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.
Our 2018 hackathon was jam packed with challenges covering games, 25GB of data, and AI tanks.
CDX 2018 featured a full story, with a theme of "State Sponsored Attacks". Students were put in charge of securing a nuclear reactor control panel, stock exchange, and the President's personal computer. There was also an escape room style side event!
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".
