This event is open to women of all skill levels: those who haven’t programmed at all, women who have done some programming, and the best women programmers out there. It will be a great weekend to learn, invent, and create the future.
The 24-hour event is open to all women, who will work collaboratively to design a website, game, or mobile app that addresses a selected real world challenge. No prior programming experience is required and registration is free. There may be up to 6 people in a team. Prior to the event, teams can plan, storyboard, and determine what they want to do and how they will go about building their solution. The only caveat is that no programming is allowed until the day of the event. Projects will be judged in 4 categories: Appropriateness to Theme, User Experience & Functionality, Originality & Impact, and Technical Difficulty.
