About this Event

RSVP today for the 8th Annual Philly Codefest at Drexel University, presented by American Water!

Philly Codefest 2020, presented by American Water, will focus on generating real world tech innovations to support environmental sustainability efforts in the greater Philadelphia region. Sustainability isn’t just an environmental issue, but it’s also a human issue that affects everyone. As climate change makes Philadelphia hotter and wetter, and sea level rise threatens our waterfronts and low-lying communities, Mayor Jim Kenney and the City of Philadelphia have committed to reducing citywide carbon pollution by 80 percent and achieving a 100 percent carbon-free electricity grid by 2050.

In its eighth year, Philly Codefest aims to bring together students and professionals from all backgrounds to develop novel, creative solutions to support the region’s sustainability and climate goals and help make our region a safer, healthier place to be for generations to come.

Philly Codefest is a free software and hardware hackathon that is open to anyone. No coding experience is necessary – just bring your creativity!

Attendees will form teams to work on projects, and then will present their final creations to a panel of judges – comprised of Drexel faculty, sponsors and Philadelphia tech community leaders – for a chance to win awesome prizes.Learn more at PhillyCodefest.com and follow us on Twitter at @PhillyCodefest to stay up-to-date on Codefest- related announcements!
