Lesbians Who Tech Summit:

The Hackathon

The Lesbians Who Tech Hackathon follows the Lesbians Who Tech Summit, and is the place for tech women to connect and work together.

Most hackathons are mostly male. The Lesbians Who Tech Hackathon is the first lesbian-focused hackathon ever. Even better, we’ll hack on projects for social good organizations that are working for LGBT rights.

Join us!

How It Works

The Lesbians Who Tech Hackathon brings together the amazing talent of our community, to work on projects for social good organizations who are working on our behalf.

We’ll have five social good organizations who work for LGBT rights. Each organization will pitch their technology project: how they want to use technology and what they want to build. Hackathon attendees will sign up for the project they want to work on, and divide up into teams. At the end of the two days, teams will pitch in front of a group of judges, for a chance to win prizes.

Who Should Attend
We’ll need coders, front-end/back-end people, designers, etc. It’s not just for developers: we also need people who can do Powerpoint, people who can pitch… even people who are good at Googling stuff!

I’m new to coding, can I come?
Yes! The Hackathon is open to people who are learning to code or new in their careers.
