FAQ's

Q: I'm a guy can I attend?
A: Of Course! Anyone 18+ is welcome to attend

Q: I'm new to programming. Can I attend?
A: Yes! Hackathons are more than just about programming. Its about going to idea to concept/prototype in a matter of hours. Hackathons teach you how to work on a team (which is extremely important) and can be an excellent project to showcase to any employer. You also don't need to be a programmer to be apart of the hackathon. Teams need designers, project mangers, etc. to push a project forward. We will also plan to have prizes specifically for newbies and professionals

Q: Will there be food?
A: Yes we plan to accommodate participants with mulitple options. If you have special accomadations such as allergies, please inform us at birmingham@womenwhocode.com or you are welcome to bring your own food. 

Q: Whare is the hackathon?
A: That is to be decided. We will inform you as soon as we can.

Q: Define a newb
A: Someonw who is new to programming, never worked in a tech position, never been in a hackathon or in more than 2 hackthons. 
Example: Student studying computer science could opt to be in a newbie track, but if the student had a software engineering internship or attended more than 2 hackathons they would have to opt for professionals.
