  • GDI Portland Hackathon 2015

    Art Institute of Portland

    Girl Develop It Portland is hosting a hackathon on April 12th as part of the ACT-W conference (Advancing the Careers of Women in Technology). (http://act-w.org) In advance of the hackathon, we’re offering a panel event called “Intro to Hackathons: How to Rock a Hack Event like a Boss!” for those new to hackathons and not sure how to approach the event to have the greatest impact on your career. The 2015 Girl Develop It Hackathon will allow any projects that meet the GDI Code of Conduct. Prizes will be awarded in multiple categories determined by the GDI planning team and the sponsor organizations. Prize categories will be announced at the Intro to Hackathons workshop on April 9. Please contact [masked] if your organization would like to sponsor a prize category or package or if you have a project idea you’d like to see in the Hackathon.

We do charge a small entry fee of $10 to participants, however there are comp codes for for the event for sponsor organizations and partners. One hundred percent of this admission fee will be used to fund Girl Develop It classes, workshops and mentorship programs. What’s a hackathon? While hacking doesn’t always have a positive meaning, the term hackathon comes from the meaning of creating something that’s less than perfect because it’s done under an intense deadline. At a hackathon participants work on projects that they themselves create, and they do so in a very short time. Hackathons are an important event in the tech and non-profit communities. The projects created during hackathons often serve as launch pads for on-going projects, participants have the opportunity to learn new skills, or to put newly acquired skills (say, from a GDI lecture or workshop!) to work, and of course, to network.
