What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is an event where people come together, break into teams, and develop cool technical projects in a limited amount of time.
Do we have to sleep overnight?
Nope! The event is hybrid this year. Some components will be virtual while some will be in-person. View the schedule for more information!
Will there be prizes?
Yes, there will be tons of prizes and lots of swag!
What if I don't have hackthon experience/know how to code/have a team?
SheInnovates is a great first hackathon! Just come eager and willing to learn. Mentors will be available online to help guide you through the hacking process.
Can I use a project that I developed outside of the hackathon?
No, submissions may not include any code that was written before the kickoff party.
Who can participate?
Any graduate or undergraduate college student. No experience required!
Where can I find information about talks and other events during the hackathon?
You can check out the schedule on our website. You can also follow SheInnovates on Twitter and Facebook for updates during the event.
Where can my team work?
Teams will be working HYBRID this year, both in person and virtually.
What about intellectual property?
