What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is best described as an “invention marathon”. Anyone who has an interest in technology attends a hackathon to learn, build & share their creations over the course of a weekend in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. You don’t have to be a programmer and you certainly don’t have to be majoring in Computer Science.
Who can participate?
Girls Hoo Hack is open to all college-aged students or anyone who has graduated within the last 12 months. We welcome all women, non-binary individuals, and women supporters.
What if I don't know how to code?
Not a problem! The entire Major League Hacking team knew very little when they attended their very first hackathon. It’s irrelevant what your prior experience is; it’s more about your interest in technology. Every MLH Member Event is passionate about making hackathons welcoming and beginner-friendly. If you want to learn how to code outside of a hackathon, you should check out the following: Treehouse, Codecademy and the Major League Hacking blog.
Are there any fees to participate?
Girls Hoo Hack is free for all participants! Throughout the event, there will also be fun opportunities to get smaller prizes, swag, and more!
How many people can be on a team?
A team can have 1-4 members.
