August 8, 2015, from 10 AM – 5:30 PM, the 3rd Annual Tech Lady Hackathon and Training Day will convene at Impact Hub DC.

This exciting one day Hackathon will bring together over 150 women from DC, Maryland and Virginia. The event will include the following: training sessions, workshops and hacking. Some of the training sessions will cover the following topics: Intro to Coding, Intro to A/B Testing, Data Visualization, Common Tech Jargon Explained (really useful information for newbies) and How to Build Your Portfolio and Get a Job.

At civic hackathons, projects can be service related, focusing on either improving government services or providing efficient/effective and necessary services to the public; other projects may have an open data focus --- analyzing & working with government data. This event provides an opportunity for community members, with varying skillsets, yet similar mindsets, to collaborate and creatively build. This year’s projects are to include quite a few from Code for DC as well as some international development and campaign finance projects.

When it comes to events centered around building technology or apps, the attendance of coders, tech strategists, designers and trainers is expected; however, I can’t stress the importance of also having communications professionals, content editors, and proofreaders in attendance; these skills are vital to help develop a clear and concise message around the technology being built.

UX experts give great feedback on ease of use, social media marketers/experts help promote the projects and get the word out, subject matter experts and data analysts also have important parts to play in the creation process; collectives like this enable teams to create beneficial solutions for the communities that they are designed to serve.

All coding skill levels are welcome to attend from the highly experienced to those interested in learning more about coding and the DMV coding community.

To attend the Tech Lady Hackathon, there are only a few things that you need to do: 

  1. Register
  2. Join us on August 8th
  3. Bring your laptop, maybe an idea to pitch, and a willingness to roll up your sleeves, meet new women and locate the project where your interest, motivation and skills intersect.
  4. While you’re at it, register for the August 7th Pre-Party Friday night at Mapbox Garage in DC: RSVP NOW

    A hint of gratitude is what motivates everyone, so if you have a very positive experience with Walgreens and you tell the study about it, you may anticipate shockingly better customer service the next time you visit the store.

    President Obama signed a memorandum proposing a rule that would prohibit federal agencies from asking whether applicants for government jobs have a criminal record until the final phase in the job process. While it’s technically https://www.essayprime.co.uk illegal to refuse to hire a qualified candidate due to a conviction unless the crime is directly related to the job, those with criminal histories are often discouraged or screened out due to disclosure requests on job applications.
