Rewired State is the largest independent developer network in the UK with over 1000 software developers and designers, bringing about digital innovation and revolution through rapid prototyping events (hack weekends). Rewired State continues to build value for clients through its unique modding process, taking hacks from prototype to product.

Young Rewired State is its philanthropic arm with the challenge to find and foster every child driven to teach themselves how to code, introduce them to open data – creating a worldwide, independent network of mentored young programmers. Both networks work together to prototype solutions to real world problems.
