Hacking for Humanity 2019 – Prize Details
May 3, 2019
Hacking for Humanity is a 2-day code-a-thon where developers, designers, scientists, students, entrepreneurs, educators, and mentors work together to build apps that solve social problems.
Hacking for Humanity is a 2-day code-a-thon where developers, designers, scientists, students, entrepreneurs, educators, and mentors work together to build apps that solve social problems. We believe that when communities work together, they don’t just do good, they become a force for global change. As an organization founded on inclusivity and equality, we invite all women, men, and nonbinary, gender-fluid, genderqueer++ to participate and collaborate!
The hackathon is part of a global series by Girls in Tech that takes place throughout the year in various cities around the world. Each chapter partners with Non-Profit Organizations (NPOs) to solve social problems local to their community. Get hands-on experience, make friends, network, and be part of a global community – starting here in Vancouver!
How is the Girls in Tech Hackathon different than other Hackathons?
Hacking for Humanity is NOT your typical 24-hour hackathon. Although this is a female-focused hackathon, participants of all genders (and non-identifying genders) are encouraged to join! We encourage diverse groups to come together and create amazing projects! Mentorship from industry professionals will be available during the hackathon, as well as amazing prizes for our winners! This event is held over 2 days but you get to go home for a good night’s rest after day 1 of hacking. You can return on day 2 refreshed and ready to polish your project for presenting and judging. We have found that this format is more female-inclusive because nobody feels pressured to sleep over or lose sleep over a hackathon.
