Kingdom Code BUILD

19-20 October 2018 #KCBUILD18 Book nowChallenges

BUILD, Kingdom Code’s annual hackathon is back for 2018.

In October, join Christian technologists from across the UK and beyond to kick start projects and share ideas that integrate your Christian faith and your technical skill set.

Whether you’re a developer, designer, project manager, branding/marketing expert, ideator or something else entirely different, you’ll enjoy taking a weekend to meet and work with others who share your desire to see God glorified through technology.

Here’s what people said about last year’s event…

At BUILD I was able to encourage and support a community who really are dedicated to Jesus and technology. It’s a really good hackathon and organisation – Corina
One of the best bits of BUILD was working with like minded people to achieve so much in a short period of time and forming new friendships – Richard
I was able to build something together that serves a higher purpose while meeting new people in the tech world – Elizabeth
[I loved the] community and endeavour to deliver something to serve Jesus – Peter
It was exciting seeing many people really stepping up and moving in the area of tech and ministry – Courtney
The hackathon team were always available to ask and kept checking if people were ok 🙂 – Liz
At this event I realised I didn’t have to be perfect to join a team and develop or have a high knowledge to start a project… I could come with the skills that I’ve got and get involved with a team – Nicholas

Venue

BUILD 2018 is being hosted by St. John’s in Hoxton.

St. John’s sits minutes away from Silicon Roundabout, London’s tech hub. They have long been a supporter of Kingdom Code and we’re really excited to be able to host the hackathon with them.

What is Kingdom Code?

When the love of Jesus and a passion for tech collide, exciting things happen. Things that may just impact the Kingdom, things like Kingdom Code!

We’re a community of people who love Jesus and love tech. We’re creatives, developers, designers, entrepreneurs, ideators and innovators. We gather often to encourage, inspire and spark serendipity. So, whether you crunch data, grapple with code, place every pixel or love casting vision, there’s a place for you to come, learn, grow, make friends, network and have fun.

We typically meet on the first Monday of the month somewhere in London. Sign up, to get connected find out more about each event.
