What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is a design & coding sprint where “hackers” with both technical and non-technical backgrounds come together to build exciting projects. Throughout the hackathon, you will learn many new skills through workshops, meet like-minded peers, and network with sponsors and mentors. At the end of the weekend, you will get a chance to demo your project and maybe go home with some prizes!
Is SheHacks VI a virtual hackathon?
Yes! This year, SheHacks VI will be a virtual event. We look forward to meeting at our largest venue yet - the Internet.
I don’t know how to code. Can I still come?
Of course! The event is designed for first-time hackers to try something new. We actively encourage people from all backgrounds, disciplines, and majors to attend! We have workshops that’ll teach you everything you need to know as well as mentors to guide you along the way. Just bring yourself, a willingness to learn, and a positive attitude!
Does SheHacks cost anything?
SheHacks is absolutely FREE, due to our generous sponsors! You will have access to a plethora of tools and workshops to help you with your project. You can also look forward to receiving some swag goodies in the mail!
Do I need to come with a team?
You can come solo or with a team. If you already have a team (3-4 people), you can register with them. If you don't have a team but would like one, we can match you up with one before the event.
Can I still come if I’m not a woman+?
SheHacks is designed to be an inclusive space to support female-identifying and non-binary individuals who are interested in technology. As we’re focused on creating a talent pipeline from minorities in tech, this event is specifically created as a place for women+ to explore the tech industry in a supportive way. Otherwise, we welcome people of all genders to participate as a volunteer or mentor. Keep an eye out on our Facebook and website for more information.
I'm a recently graduated student. Can I still apply?
Yes! We welcome current students as well as new grads to attend SheHacks. There will be many networking opportunities with our sponsors as well if you are actively searching for a job!
I don't attend a Canadian university. Can I still apply?
Yes! Since SheHacks is a virtaul event this year, we welcoming students from around the world to participate. The only downside is we may not be able to send you a full swag package but you will still receive exclusive MLH SheHacks stickers in the mail!
