What is a Hackathon?
SheHacksHTX is a weekend-long convening of engineers, software developers, designers, data nerds, marketers, visionaries, and anyone else with an interest in starting a business.
Do I need to know how to code?
No! We are looking for all skills - whether it be tech skills, marketing skills, engineering, project management, design, or leadership! There are a million ways to be part of something great!
How will I find a team?
We will do the work to hook you up with a team that needs your skills. You are welcome to form your own team (or parts of a team) - but please make sure everyone submits their own application.
What isn't a Hackathon?
We're not doing anything illegal, if that's what you're thinking!
Will there be food?
Yes! We'll provide breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.
