Making an Impact in Our Community Through Social Change.

Join Girls in Tech San Diego for our Third Annual Hacking for Humanity, a Hackathon for social good! This year our hacking efforts will be focused on tackling topics that deal with our San Diego Veteran Community.

We’ll be hosted at Amazon’s offices in UTC with mentors and speakers from top San Diego tech companies as well as Veteran advocacy networks! Networking and all meals are included! 

This hackathon is beginner-friendly for participants new to coding or hackathons. However, any and all levels are welcome. There are lots of opportunities for non-coders as well - in areas like design, project management, and social entrepreneurship, and public presentation! Hacking for Humanity is a woman-, man-, non-binary-, POC-, and LGBTQ-friendly environment!

You can come with your own team (no more than 5 per team) or let us match you with your complimentary hackers!. Form a team, solve a problem, create something awesome, present it to the audience and win prizes!

 

Even More Details:

This Hackathon exists to enable the rapid prototyping of a complex problem and provide a range of solutions in a short period of time. We will inspire and encourage you to tackle big questions around global change and how we can solve them using technology, while also empowering new entrepreneurs to engage in innovation and development within our tech ecosystem. We are calling all women and men across the globe, including developers, designers, product developers, and entrepreneurs, plus businesses that want to embrace the idea of Social Innovation or initiatives that combine a positive mission with business.
