    🤖 Our IoT Hackathon is back the weekend of Oct. 4 - Oct. 6! This year's theme is Sustainable Homes.

    ➡️➡️ RSVP on Eventbrite: https://iot-hackathon-2019.eventbrite.com ⬅️⬅️

    This event is geared towards women but we also welcome everyone who supports our mission of inspiring women to excel in technology careers. The goal of the IoT Hackathon is to gain new programming skills, have fun, and work in teams to build sustainable solutions.

    We welcome your expertise at this event, whether you are a developer, designer, product manager, project manager, data scientist, business analyst, or marketing professional. You will be working in teams of 4-6 to come up with the next great IoT solution. This hackathon is geared towards all skill levels. If this is your first hackathon, you will fit right in! If you are a seasoned professional ready to lead a dedicated team, this event is also for you!

    We will kick things off with a Sponsors Fair on Friday evening. This will be your opportunity to meet our sponsoring tech companies and learn more about them. We will get started with a welcome and IoT tech talks at 7:30pm, before assigning teams at 9pm. On Sunday, presentations will start at 3:30pm. We will have several mentors available throughout the weekend to answer questions and help you debug. Finally, we will be providing food, drinks, and snacks throughout the event, so please join us!
