A hackathon is a collaborative programming event in which participants create an app, website, game, or other piece of software over the course of the event. Hackathon participants can be female college (including non-RIT) or high school students who are at least 16 years of age.
This event is open to women of all skill levels: those who haven’t programmed at all, women who have done some programming, and the best women programmers out there. It will be a great day to learn, invent, and create the future. Don’t have a team in mind? No worries -- RIT Women in Computing will be hosting a series of events (including one on the morning of the event) to facilitate team formation. All meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks) will be provided, and participation is free.
New to programming? Join our Newbie Track! The Newbie Track runs right along with the hackathon and teaches basic programming skills to those who have little to no programming experience.
Transportation: At this time we will not be providing travel reimbursement. Busses may be provided for high demand areas.
