Event Details

Hackentine's Day is for women and girls of all skill levels and ages to get together and build something radical.

If you’ve *never* written a line of code in your life, but you want to learn, we want you here! If you’re a super awesome programmer who knows more about compilers than Grace Hopper, we’re honored to have you. You’ll leave Hackentine's Day with a fully functioning project that you can call your own.

We'll provide coffee, lunch, and cupcakes (vegan/GF options). You provide your awesome self.

What will we build?

E-Valentine's Day cards!

Schedule for Saturday, February 8th

  • 12:00pm - 2:00pm: HTML/CSS
  • 2:00pm - 3:00pm: LUNCH!
  • 3:00pm - 5:00pm: jQuery & intro to JS
  • 5:00pm - end: demos, judging, and awards

Why should I learn to program?

Because the future depends on you. Even if you only know a little bit, knowing more about how the internet works can open up opportunities for you. Programmers are paid *well* to solve fun problems all day. Shouldn't more women and girls be joining in? We think so.

Programming is not scary. It is not lonely. It is not mathematical. We've created a safe space for you to learn and ask questions. We're here to start a revolution, be a part of it!

What should I work on?

  • We provide an easy to follow beginner tutorial for HTML/CSS
  • We provide an intermediate project tutorial featuring JS
  • Or, hack on your own!

Wait, I'm not a lady.

Well, barely are we! But we're redefining what it means to be a lady.

Guests of all genders are welcome, as long as male attendees are the personal guests of a lady attending.

What could I win?

Aside from the satisfaction of making something awesome, we'll have prizes for both beginners and experts including:

  • an Arduino
  • a Raspberry Pi
  • "JavaScript: The Good Parts" by Douglas Crockford
  • stickers!!!
