T9Hacks is a 24-hour hackathon held at the ATLAS Institute on Feb 10-11. All majors are encouraged to attend. No experience or expertise is required, just a desire to learn and create.
If you've never heard of a hackathon before, that's okay! Hackathons are collaborative technical events where teams or individuals can work on projects and learn new skills. Some projects will be technical, but there will also be creative, experimental, interdisciplinary, and artistic projects being created as well. Hackathons are a great place to learn a new skill or try something new in an open and supportive environment. T9Hacks is a beginner's women's hackathon with workshops and tracks in Creative Technology, Humanitarian Technology, and Cyber Security. It's non-competitive and very welcoming for people to join, no matter their skill level or experience. This is also an excellent addition to put on your resume, especially for those interested in computer science or engineering.
Scholarships, Community, and Networking, Oh My! // Saturday, February 4 // ATLAS 100
NCWIT will be one of many workshop presenters. From busting myths about why women are underrepresented in computing to creating awareness about the benefits and types of computing careers, come find out about the work NCWIT does and what NCWIT has to offer college women in computing through its Aspirations in Computing initiative (exclusive access to scholarships, internships, and professional work), as well as other opportunities.
We'd love to see women from all over CU there. You can learn more and sign up at http://www.t9hacks.org/.
