We’re hoping to encourage people of all backgrounds, ages, and locations to learn and love programming. Learn to code and create a product in the hackathon. No matter who you are, you’re welcome here—and you’ll surprise yourself with what you can accomplish.

Get the chance to learn and work with underrepresented communities across all races, ages, ethnicities, sexual orientations, abilities, veteran statuses, and gender identities.

Requirements

  • We require all teams to submit a 2 minute or less demo video

  • .Your video must be created the weekend of the hackathon. 

  • Your code must be available in some sort of public repository. 

  • We do allow you to submit your project to other hackathons (this weekend only) as long as the other hackathon also allows this. 

  • If you're continuing work on an old project, you MUST specify in your Devpost submission form what was worked on 1) before the hackathon and 2) during the hackathon.
