Digital Women has a very exciting event coming up in April. We will be hosting our first annual Code Camp. This will be an opportunity for collegiate women to work together in teams to create a project while learning and developing coding skills.
Code Camp is aimed to be a more collaborative event than traditional hackathons and to do that we have industry professionals to act as mentors to work with a team for the weekend as well as networking partners to do tech talks and hang out around the event to encourage more women to consider how tech can shape their career.
Code Camp will kick off April 7th at 5:00 pm and closing ceremonies will be April 8th at 6:00 pm. We will have swag and all meals included.
Joining Code Camp is easy! All you need to do is sign up and show up on April 7th at 5:00 pm in the Coover Hall TLA, 2520 Osborn Dr Room #1313.
Any questions regarding Code Camp or if you or someone you know are interested in being a mentor for this event can be directed to the Code Camp Head Organizer and Digital Women Vice President, Kate Litscher at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, MLH will provide an extensive inventory of hardware from whcih you can rent for free.

Nope! We will have sessions to help people find team members, as well as to help people think of ideas to work on for the hackathon. So you should sign up regardless!
Yes, if you have a team prior to the event that is excellent! Although keep in mind that there can be up to only four people on one team.
Crash course material will cover how to demo and using Git, Unity, HTML, and AngularJS.
All crash courses are entirely optional to attend and are intended to aid beginners in the subjects.
Yes! There will be free meals throughout the event that are free for all Code Camp attendees.
No, contestants are not allowed to work on their projects before the 24-hour period. If you want to prepare for the hackathon, focus on gaining experience with and knowledge of the tools you hope to use to build your project.
The best way to prepare for Code Camp is up to each individual attendee, but it is a good idea to try and form a team, generate some ideas, and freshen up on the languages that will be needed with any of the thousands of free online programming courses.
