about

WiCHacks is a women, femme, and non-binary 24-hour hackathon hosted by Women in Computing at RIT. A hackathon is a collaborative programming event in which participants create an app, website, game, or other piece of software over the course of the event.

This event is open to all skill levels: from students who haven't programmed at all, to the best programmers out there, it will be a great day to learn, invent, and create the future!

FAQs

Yes! Anyone with any amount of coding experience can participate in this hackathon.

We would really appreciate it if you did not use past projects and only submit your WiCHacks project to WiCHacks devpost.

Do not fret! We will have many bonding sessions so you can find your dream team.

The hackathon will be on February 26-27.

The hackathon will be in person for RIT students only due to COVID restrictions. All other hackers will be online and on discord making this a hybrid hackathon!
