A hackathon is an event that gathers programmers with different abilities to "hack" and create a project in a limited amount of time.
PixelHacks was founded as the Bay Area's first student-run, all-female high school hackathon. It was a 24-hour, overnight hackathon as attendees work to build a software project that addresses a real-world problem. Our mission is to encourage women to pursue computing and technology and promote diversity in this ever-growing field.
We want to make sure that PixelHacks is enjoyable and safe for everyone. You can find the code of conduct below.
PixelHacks will be held on 1/27-28, 2018 (yes, it is overnight). It will be hosted at Medallia; 450 Concar Dr, San Mateo, CA 94402.
This event, including all food, swag, and prizes, is completely free!
Any female high school student may apply and attend.
You don't need to have a team formed beforehand - you can form teams during the hackathon. Each team can have 1 to 4 individuals.
Absolutely not! There will also be workshops where you can improve your skills, mentors throughout the hackathon to help you personally, and you can also learn from other students!
