Womandroid Hackathon is an all-female coding weekend to empower each other by building a network and sharing knowledge.

Who can join?

Since this is a women-powered hackathon, all participants, speakers, and helpers will be female. We welcome also non-binary and transgender participants.

Fast Facts
- Theme: Women Empowerment
- Lunch will be served both days (including snacks, high tea, drinks etc. to keep the energy up)
- Kids: Bring them. We will have a nanny present during both days
- What do I need to bring? Your laptop, charger, phone, and enthusiasm to build cool things!

This will be a weekend of coding, inspiration and a lot of fun! On the last day, dinner will be served after 6pm, so we hope you can stay!

Why: The main idea with the Womandroid Hackathon is to empower each other by building a network and sharing knowledge.

The Hackathon:
The theme of the hackathon is Women Empowerment. This could mean anything your team believes that would empower your female user in her daily life.

Think of it as MVP (Minimum Viable Product) product development, presenting ideas, and a lot of coding. And then add the opportunity to meet and work with other people and develop your skills.

Do I need to be an Android Expert?
No. You will be assigned a group where your group members have different levels of experience. What’s required is some kind of knowledge in android development and a big will to learn!

Is that all?
Nope. At the end of the hackathon, a jury will look at your project, provide feedback and finally appoint winning teams! There will be neat prizes for the top 3!

Themes and speakers of Lightning Talks: TBA

*Let us know if there is any specific topic you would like to have as a lightning talk. Depending on the demand we can also increase the number of the lightning talks. If you are interested to give a technical or inspirational talk, please contact us.*


What can I bring into the event?

Bring your laptop, phones, chargers, and your enthusiasm to build great things.
