Women's History Month kicks off in our area with the Philly Tech Meetup-sponsored LadyHacks, a women*-only hackathon taking place March 1-2 at WHYY. Organized by women* of the Greater Philadelphia tech community, this event welcomes women* of all experience levels from a variety of technical and creative disciplines to participate in a collaborative, web-based project in an inclusive and safe space.
Philly Tech Meetup members are entitled to a 25% discount on tickets to this event. To receive your discount, enter the code PHILLYTECHMEETUP when ordering.
If you’ve ever taken a Girl Develop It or Web Start Women class, dove into an online tech tutorial, or attended a PyStar or Hacktory workshop, this is a great opportunity to take the skills you’ve learned and apply them to a collaborative project working with like-minded individuals.
Even if you haven’t attended any of these events or participated in these groups, you’re still welcome to attend. The primary goal of LadyHacks is to get a room full of women* interested in learning more about hackathons.
Proceeds from the hackathon will support the local chapters of TechGirlz and Girl Develop It.
Please note that this event is only open to women.
