In celebration of International Women’s Day, WWCode SD is having our very first community hackathon!

Come join us on Saturday, March 10th, 2018 at the gorgeous offices of UE.co in downtown San Diego!

Participate in collaborative and creative coding challenges over a day-long coding sprint as you work in teams to build projects. We’ll have mentors around to answer coding questions and give project insights. The event culminates in a presentation before a panel of judges at the end of the day. This is a Hackathon designed to showcase women as we take on tech!

FAQ

Eligibility

All attendees must be over the age of eighteen and registered on devpost.

Teams can be any size you'd like, however, we will only provide prizes for up to four people per team.

Requirements

Submissions must include a description of the project and a link to the code (via GitHub, Bitbucket, or other services). Descriptions should detail what your project is, how you made it, what technologies you used, and anything else you would like the judges to know.

Demos and videos are not required but are heavily encouraged because they are a very powerful way to demonstrate the results of all of your hard work during the hackathon!   While Powerpoint presentations can be useful in presenting pitches, the focus of this event is in actually building a working project, so we would love to see your project in action.
