I have received many engineering awards, but I hope I will also be remembered as an advocate for the rights of women and children.

Frequently asked questions

Why do we need an all-female hackathon?

Women are underrepresented in the tech world, but it’s up to us women to change that! We are creating a welcoming environment to show that there is a place in tech for every lady out there while building cool projects and sharing stories at ElleHacks.

Do I need any experience in computer science to participate?

Students of all skill levels are encouraged to attend, even if you’ve never written a line of code. We’re prepared to teach you everything you need to learn right here while also supporting the most experienced hackers.

What Will I Need?

You must bring a valid student or government issued ID card for admission. Since it is an online hackathon make sure to keep your devices charged and find a comfortable environment to start hacking! These devices can be whatever you have at hand but it is recommended to use a laptop or desktop.

How does a team work?

Teams consist of 4 members. You can always use our facebook group and slack channel to find other individuals who might be your potential team members.
