Austin Diversity Hackathon
Join WWCode Austin for our fourth annual diversity hackathon! #ATXDivHack (Note: by signing up you are agreeing to abide by this code of conduct). For updates follow us on Twitter or Facebook.
This hackathon is a celebration of diversity. Anyone who supports diversity is welcome — no matter your level of technical knowledge.
We are providing a space for people of all backgrounds who want to start building their tech portfolio or finish up a tech project while learning new skills. Previous experience in tech is **NOT** required. If you are an advanced coder, we are looking for mentors. We are also looking for volunteers. If you are nervous about attending a hackathon, just volunteer and see what it is all about!
Plus, we have a parallel FREE workshop track for anyone who wants to come and just start learning, learn more, or meet people.
Bonus: FREE headshots starting at 9:30AM Saturday!!!!
Not sure what to work on? We encourage participants to look into open data or civic hacking projects, for more information check out our partners, Open Austin.
