Hi folks,

Next Thursday the 15th at 13:00 in KE B-034 we will have a short visit from Allied Irish Banks who will be in to promote their Hackathon which is taking place on November 7th. 

The presentation is being given by Cathy Roche who is currently completing the work placement aspect to her DT265 course. 



€2,000 CASH  
 Entrants are invited from Irish 3rd Level colleges to enter and attend the Datahack in AIB Bankcentre in Dublin on Saturday the 7th November 2015 for a fun 12-hour event where they will compete for awesome prizes. Both undergraduates and taught post graduate students are eligible to enter this exciting event which will see teams of two competing in one of two interesting challenges. 
The Hackathon Challenge will see teams attempt to building new and interesting applications for AIB while the Datathon Challenge will require teams to use data analysis skills to solve an intriguing data puzzle. Participating teams are required to bring their own laptops to the event.
Many fantastic spot prizes (such as drones and tablets) will be awarded to participants throughout the day while on-site caterers provide food to hungry competitors.  For more information, or to register your team, check out our website at
