Portland has no shortage of hackathons. But it’s always nice to see something with a particular focus or centered around a certain community. And what’s even nicer? When they happen on a regular basis. Which is why I’m psyched to see We Code—a women’s hackathon hosted by Nike and Puppet Labs—which is taking place for the second time.
Women of any level of programming experience are encouraged to join. Teams will be selected to include a mix of experience levels and skill sets. This is meant to be a safe and welcoming environment open to all without discrimination. Although this list cannot be exhaustive, we honor and respect diversity in age, culture, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, race, religion, sexual orientation and technical ability.
The event will start at 7PM on July 24 and run through 6PM on July 25 at Puppet Labs in downtown Portland. And there are already a bunch of awesome women signed up.
