WiCHacks is an all-women, 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 women who haven't programmed at all, to the best women programmers out there, it will be a great day to learn, invent, and create the future!
