WiCHacks is over!
We hope you had a great time and come back next year.
Check out the devpost and see some amazing projects!

WiCHacks is a women and gender-minorities 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!

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 March 4-5, 2023.

The hackathon will be hybrid! People are welcome to come in person or participate online.
