Description

Product Hunt has created a Global Hackathon and Brains and Beauty co have been given the pleasure of creating a real-time hacking event with a twist.

Hackathons have long been associated with a bunch of smelly, guys sitting around computers hacking away eating way too much junk food and fizzy drinks. The come down is real!

The best environments to feed creativity is providing healthy food and snacks. You are what you eat, I am sure I heard someone say this before.

This is not the case and Brains and Beauty want to introduce a whole new demographic of Hackathons.


Not everyone can be winners but it is a great platform for you too show off your skills to employers who are looking for amazing team members to fill their roles. With awesome people like yourself.

You: "Oh but, I can't code"

B&B co: "First off you don't need to be a coder. Hackathons require many things. Not just a coder or developer for a product to scale and provide a solution you need many things and coding is just part of the idea"

OUR TARGET AUDIENCE:

There is a number of conversation across many industries especially technology, which states there is a lack of diversity within the workforce. So, we came up with the idea of Misfits of tech we want to engage and expose many people from underrepresented groups to the amazing things you can create with technology. We want more women or anyone who identifies as a woman, ex-offenders*, parents, mothers, LGBT, religiously affiliated especially Muslim and Jewish women.


DATE:

The event runs from Saturday 25th and Sunday 26tth November 2017

Product Hunt has created a Global Hackathon and Brains and Beauty co have been given the pleasure of creating a real-time hacking.
