Do You Have The GUTS

The annual biggest tech event in town is back once again, hosted by the Glasgow University Tech Society! Held in collaboration with the School of Computing Science and influential tech companies based in the UK. This is your chance to show your coding ability, nudge your foot in the industry door or just have fun and eat free pizza!

The event is open to all students and no previous coding experience is required! If you don't have a team, don’t worry, you can arrange one on the spot! Food and drink are provided to make sure you are at your best the entire way through.

It all begins with choosing from some of the great challenges that you and your team will take on. The event runs the entire weekend, and while sleeping is optional, sleeping spaces are provided, but remember to bring a sleeping bag!

The event is entirely free, however tickets and places are limited, so grab yours as soon as you can! We hope you join us on this coding adventure!
