Register for DevelopHer Hackday 2015

A hackday for women. Form a team, code all night, create something awesome, and present it to the judges to win prizes.

What is a hackday?

LinkedIn dedicates one Friday per month to hackday competitions: engineers form teams, work on something they are passionate about, build a 'hack' (a rapid prototype or demo),and present it to the whole company, with the executive staff acting as judges and awarding prizes to the best projects.

So what's the DevelopHer Hackday?

A special hackday competition open to the public with the goal of encouraging more women to participate in engineering, hackdays, and entrepreneurship.
