Event description


Developer Camp: The World's Best Hackathon

Who: Developers, designers, entrepreneurs, testers, and storytellers. The elite corps of Developer Camp Counselors — winners of past events, and distinguished members of our community from the Bay Area stand ready to teach and help.

Developer Camp Counselor
What: 48-Hour hackathon for iOS, bots, and the Web. This collaborative event, featuring superstar hackers and designers to help everyone learn to code, build custom hardware, and generally make ideas come to life. Watch the video.

Shift Culture
When: February 24-26 (Friday evening through Sunday). See our schedule and details.

Build community
Where: Startup LaunchPad, San Francisco, CA—a brand-new space from Google, open all weekend until 10pm each day.

14 Camps over 9 Years

Why: There is a huge opportunity to bring diversity to the technology industry. Women and girls, men and boys, we all deserve more opportunities to start coding using simple, powerful tools. Watch our Women of iOSDevCamp video.

44% Women

How: Our partner PullString makes creating computer conversation super fun and easy! Using any Mac or PC, a writer can script and publish a chat bot using their service, starting for free.

If you'd rather learn on any recent-model iPad, Apple's free Swift Playgrounds app will teach you to code joyfully.

This event has catalyzed the launch of award winning startups (like Getaround and Foodspotting), the formation of founder dream teams (Square), and the building of a talented and collaborative community of developers.

Out-of-town guests are welcome to join our inclusive event. Though projects will include both solo and team efforts, we encourage attendees to build teams of diverse expertise — business ideas, marketing, design, testing, coding, and back-end development. All attendees should be prepared to participate in the development of a project during the event. Scholarships are available to encourage diversity, and mentors are available.

“It’s one of the most pure and original hackathons. People come from all around and really just hack on something, meet new people, cherish the relationships that they create here—and go out to create huge companies. The developers we’ve met at Developer Camp are among the best in the world. Some of them have gone on to join our team. We’re excited to be supporting the event again this year... Developer Camp is the best.”

-Zac Bowling, Google engineer
has attended 100+ hackathons
