Join us December 5-7, 2014
Our approach is a little different from other hackathons.
Friday evening we're meeting at AC4D (Austin Center for Design) and each founder will do a lightning talk. The networking on that night provides each coder and designer with an opportunity to ask the founder questions and select their top 3 team choices.
Saturday when you arrive at Capital Factory you'll find the register list of teams.
Our goal is to pair you with a project that mosts interests you AND the opportunity to learn skills from your fellow team mates. We try our best to pair newbie coders with experienced coders; as well as, designers who have complimentary skills.
Sunday everyone meets at Soma Vida to present their work and share their experience with the group.
Really hope you can join us in December - all of the founder spots are now filled and we'll be posting more details soon. We've also brought on a few sponsors and we'll be sharing those details ASAP.

More about the event:
No other event in Austin pairs women coders and founders for a day of hacking. And this time we’re inviting designers to create complete product teams.
Originally, the idea of creating an event for founders to find help with their software product seemed simple enough. Women struggle more than any group to secure funding and scale their startup.
As more women get into tech there remains to be few opportunities to develop the leadership skills necessary for career advancement. Although there is much debate about why few women hold c-level jobs, get into technology and remain in their careers for the long haul; events like SheHacksATX and SheDesignsATX narrows the conversation to focus on action. Through practice women develop the confidence to advance their skills and career goals.
Startup founders get the benefit of expert help; while coders and designers get to practice their consultancy and leadership skills.
We’ll be pairing up female founders with women coders and designers for the largest event of it’s kind.
