Philly Codefest 2.0

Note: This event is not affiliated with Girl Develop It. We are promoting it for members seeking experience & network opportunities.

Philly Codefest is a two-day coding competition to transform data into real world solutions. This exciting coding marathon brings together innovative thinkers and programmers of all types. Competitors can organize into teams ahead of time, or come to the Codefest as ‘free agents’ and build a team at the start of the event. The teams then spend the next 36 hours developing exciting new prototypes and tools that improve access to information and decision making, competing against each other for bragging rights and cash prizes. 

Focus areas include:

• Health, Hospital and Patient Care

• Government and Civic Solutions

• Media and Digital Arts

• Data Science and Visualization

• Cybersecurity

• Hardware Tools

Team mentoring will be provided and food/drinks will be served at the event. Bring your laptop, power strip, and energy! 

You must RSVP at to attend. Questions? Contact Dave Raiken at [masked]

      Right now we are planning on just one workshop prior to Codefest. If you'd like to stop by after your appointment tomorrow, we can try to fill you in on what you missed.
