Event Description

TechTogether Seattle is a 2-day hackathon for people of marginalized genders hosted by community leaders across Washington. The event will tentatively be held on November 19-20th at the University of Washington. Stay tuned!

Join us for two full days of skill-building and professional development workshops, networking with recruiters, and of course - fun activities like face masks. Each attendee has the option to work with a team to build a project like a website or mobile application with the support of our mentors. Whether it's your first hackathon or your 100th, everyone has something to learn and contribute at this event!

🪴 The theme for this hackathon will be Planting the Seed! 🪴 Inspired by the act of planting and the essence of growth and nurturing, this theme is all about laying the groundwork for your future and hopes for the world. For example, some of you might want to plant the seed for a more sustainable earth.
