Girl Develop It Miami is hosting a newbie-friendly Hackathon. Join us for our very first Hackathon! This will be a group project where we start with a brainstorming session based on the event’s project description, break off into groups, and then build something amazing, all in one day.
Our sponsors are providing food, goodies, cool prizes, and more.
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.
The goal of this Hackathon is to give Girl Develop It attendees the opportunity to be an active participant in the Miami Tech movement. The planned group project will increase the visibility of the city’s tech community.

Limited participants will be accepted, so sign up soon!
