Hackathons have become a staple event at Umbraco festivals worldwide and UDUF 2019 will be no different.

Niels Hartvig and Shannon Deminick from Umbraco HQ were on hand to provide assistance and will be there this year. The Hackathon will be held on the 28th of February and is your chance to improve and enhance your favourite CMS.
