herScript Hacks 2017
Sat, Apr 29, 2017, 9:00 AM – Sun, Apr 30, 2017, 3:00 PM PDT
herScript Hacks is an annual regional hackathon meant to engage and excite the tech community by creating technological solutions to real-world problems. This year’s herScript hackathon is AgTech themed for developers and students interested in AgTech.
herScript will create an environment that fosters innovation. Each team will be encouraged to think outside of the box and their imagination will have no bounds. Attendees will feel as if they are in an AgTech incubator. A trialogue between students, facebook engineers, and agriculture experts will feel natural, and each conversation will help all parties form relationships and better understand agriculture.
- Floor: Be familiar with Object-Oriented Programming and Data Structures
- Ceiling: It doesn't exist. Whether you're a student, first-year engineer, or senior engineer, feel free to take the weekend off and hack with us!
Is this open to any gender?
Do I have to be a student to attend?
No, we do have a floor defined, though. It would be helpful if you know OOP and data structures or have experience creating a software program. Whether you're a student, first-year engineer, or senior engineer, feel free to take the weekend off and hack with us!

Bring a form of identification to confirm your admission into the event. There are no age requirements; if you know object oriented programming and feel as if you can develop a prototype solution, please register.
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
We encourage that you carpool with people that you know will be attending. You may want to route to the parking structure next door.
Is parking free?
Bad news: Not all of if.
Good news: It's very inexpensive and we are covering 4 hours! (If you let us know you need a 4 hour voucher from us)
The Monterey Parking Garage charges $4.00 for a full day pass and $2.00 to stay overnight until noon, and $0.50 per hour.
We do, however, have a free voucher to cover your last four hours (noon - 4pm on Sunday). If you take a voucher from us, you will only have to pay $6.00. If you don't then you will have to to pay $8.00.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
No, please make sure your name on the ID matches the name that you submitted on your registration form. If you need to change it, please contact the organizer of the event.
Can I sign up with a team? / How will teams be formed?
No, but don't worry all teams will be self-formed on day one. Reference the itinerary on Saturday from 11:00a-12:00p for more information on this. Team sizes will range from 3-4. We will allow larger teams if you can justify the size.
I don't want to participate, but I would still like to attend, can I?
Yes, you can, but on Sunday. We will have our participants demonstrate their work on Sunday, April 30th from 1:00p - 3:00p. Feel free to attend during these hours! Please bring a friend to join you.
Where is the code of conduct?
It's currently being authored, but just follow the golden rule and you'll be on our good list!

Western Growers Innovation Center
Western Growers, founded in 1926, is a trade association of California, Arizona and Colorado farmers who grow, pack, and ship almost 50% of our nation's produce.
To help our members do more with less, Western Growers launched the Western Growers Center for Innovation and Technology (WGCIT) in Salinas, CA. The Center was created to help identify industry priorities, discover technologies to address those priorities, set up testing, facilitate industry feedback and communicate progress to California, Arizona, and Colorado fresh produce farmers.
Founded in 2004, Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected. People use Facebook to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what’s going on in the world, and to share and express what matters to them.
The goal of igniteCS is to encourage undergraduate students who have an interest in computer science, diversity, and helping others to apply what they’re learning in the classroom through mentoring. We provide funding, resources, and support while student groups develop a program, find a faculty advisor, and take it into their local community.
