We'd love to see you at TechTogether New York's first virtual hackathon, open to any and all women (cis & trans) and non-binary individuals.

About this Event

Thinking back on 2020, it’s easy to say that it’s been one heck of a year so far. Given the many challenges we’ve had to face, this year has been a time of unprecedented change – and along with it, plenty of uncertainty. It’s important now more than ever to come together (virtually, of course) and support one another as we face the challenges of this year, as a community.

The theme for TechTogether New York 2020, Embracing Uncertainty, allows us to do just that. On the weekend of the hackathon, you’ll be able to meet other passionate hackers in a warm and welcoming environment and work together to build a project that can help individuals and communities make the most of these difficult times. With challenges like Best Self-Care Hack, Best “Helping People Connect” Hack, and Best Beginner Hack (and many more!), we’d love to see what you come up with!

Why attend TechTogether New York?

  • Learn new skills (technical and otherwise) with plenty of workshops tailored towards everyone from beginners to experts 👩🏽‍🏫
  • Network with top companies like Accenture, Facebook, and Capital One! We’ll also have opportunities to learn from employees about what it’s like to work in the tech industry, their tips and advice, information about potential jobs and internships , and chances to share your resume! 📝
  • Meet new people and become a part of a supportive community; our team is working hard to make sure you have plenty of opportunities to form teams and lasting relationships with your fellow hackers! 💖
  • Have lots of FUN!! We have really fun events and activities (everything from cooking classes to movie nights) for you to try all weekend long, not to mention swag coming your way :)) 🎉🎉

Are you a beginner hacker? No worries! We’d love to have you <3 Our team is putting together information for beginners, so you know exactly how to navigate the hackathon before it even starts. We’ll also have lots of opportunities to get to meet people and form teams, and even have a prize for the best beginner hack!

Not sure if you want to compete or if hackathons are for you? Feel free to just attend the workshops and other activities if you find yourself not wanting to compete – you’ll definitely learn a lot and still have a fun weekend!
