Event description
The future lies within your hands! Come and join us for a two day women hackathon event!

About this Event

We are putting together a first of its kind Hackathon for Women in Copenhagen, to immerse in the power of coding and come up with creative solutions for everyday and business problems. Our goal is to empower women to be more involved – so if you are a tech woman aspiring to become a programmer or a data scientist or you are just interested in tech and AI, you are the right person!

We challenge you to come up with an innovative digital solution to a real-life problem.

You will have 24 hours to work in a team on the challenge and present your solution to a panel of industry leaders, who will award the best ideas. Throughout the event, industry experts will help you identify and refine your ideas.

#WomenHackCPH is more than just a hackathon for women. It is a platform where you can actively engage in code development, data science, tech and with AI professions. You can make this world a better place and make an impact that really matters!

Who is it for?

This competition is relevant for female students and early professionals interested in IT, tech, UX/UI and machine learning with a background in physics, mathematics, biology, chemistry, software development, design, science and economics who have some experience with coding.

We invite all women working or aspiring to be programmers or data scientist or just having fun and explore the field.

Your Team?

You can sign up on your own and we will make sure you are in a great team of up to 5 people with various skills and interests on the day of the event.

As an individual it is your responsibility to bring your own operational computer with the desired software for hacking.

The challenges?

The challenges will support real data and unique datasets from our partners, LEGO and Ørsted in field of computer vision, mathematical modelling, design and software development.

Our intention with the Hackathon is to focus on “workable ideas” and not algorithms as the target! Output could be solution blueprints – which is a mix of visualisations, web pages or code with algorithms.

Networking?

The #WomenHackCPH is a unique opportunity for networking! The challenging environment is a fun way to meet and collaborate with like-minded female students or professionals across disciplines and competencies. In our experience, similar events built the foundation of new, lasting ventures and personal relationships.

You will also get the chance to meet hiring managers from various industries and learn what are the current market trends for hiring data scientists and software developers.

Deadline for registration?

Deadline for sign up is 1st of November 2019. Sing-up as soon as possible because of the limited places available!
