Clockwork is Sponsoring Hack Manchester 2016!

Mediaburst has four SMS products, one of which is our easy text message API Clockwork. Clockwork lets you send and receive text messages automatically via your own apps.

Clockwork has sponsored Hack Manchester for the past 3 years but this year we’re going bigger and better by sponsoring both Hack Manchester and Hack Manchester Junior.

Both events take place at the Museum of Science and Industry and we have our challenges and prizes at the ready!

Hack Manchester Senior

Hack Manchester Senior is a 24 hour coding competition which is taking place across the 29th and 30th October 2016. Teams of up to 4 must develop an idea into a working product within the 24 hours provided. Their idea should be based on certain challenges set by the sponsors and the final product is presented to the judges on the Sunday.

This year, our challenge is:

USE SMS TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE

Our winning team will be presented with FOUR Sphero SPRK Plus’!
