Event Details

4th Annual Austin Diversity Hackathon #ATXDivHack


   

Join WWCode Austin for our fourth annual diversity hackathon! #ATXDivHack (Note: by signing up you are agreeing to abide by this code of conduct). For updates follow us on Twitter or Facebook.


This hackathon is a celebration of diversity. Anyone who supports diversity is welcome — no matter your level of technical knowledge. 

 

We are providing a space for people of all backgrounds who want to start building their tech portfolio or finish up a tech project while learning new skills. Previous experience in tech is **NOT** required. If you are an advanced coder, we are looking for mentors. We are also looking for volunteers. If you are nervous about attending a hackathon, just volunteer and see what it is all about!

 

Plus, we have a parallel FREE workshop track for anyone who wants to come and just start learning, learn more, or meet people. 

 

Not sure what to work on? We encourage participants to look into open data or civic hacking projects, for more information check out our partners, Open Austin
