Fancy hacking together a project over a weekend in May that could end up with you getting a place on the Bethnal Green Ventures accelerator program like Project Tide, presenting at the Digital Catapult in London like WHOAMI, or kickstarting a project that is now crowdfunding for £100k like the LIFE Project (all of these were started at a DHOx Digital Health Hack Weekend)? Maybe you'd like to build on some of the design-thinking and rapid prototyping skills learned at the recent Digital Health Workshop?

If so, please join us for the fourth Digital Health Hack, when we'll be returning to the excellent venue of The Oxford Launchpad. Once again, it promises to be a fantastic weekend of building projects, meeting great people, learning new skills, and having a lot of fun!

Whilst you're free to work on any digital health project, there will be a focus at this hack on Open Data, Open Source and Open Standards, and we'll be bringing some experts in to help guide and inspire you.

The weekend will kick off at 9am on Saturday 7th May, with an opportunity to pitch your idea and build a team. You don't have to be an expert medic, clinician, coding guru, or ninja researcher, but will have the opportunity to meet any/all of the above and work on an amazing project. All you need is enthusiasm, energy and the willingness to contribute and you're sure to have a really good time.

If you're in any doubt, just ask people who have been to previous hack weekends, check out the comments from previous hack weekends on the past Meetup events, or read one of the write-ups from previous hack weekends here and here.
