about us

FemmeHacks is a beginner-friendly, collegiate hackathon for women-identifying* individuals in Philly/NY/NJ, hosted by the University of Pennsylvania's Women in Computer Science. Our goal is to inspire, teach, and empower women in the Philly tech community. We believe that together we can learn, build cool projects, and create a community of technical women* in the field. FemmeHacks offers both beginner and intermediate workshops on Friday in topics like web dev, hardware, and GitHub (a code collaboration tool). On Saturday, we have all-day hacking with mentoring engineers, side events, swag, and good food.

* we realize "women" is a complicated term. We use * to specifically and intentionally welcome trans and cis women, as well as nonbinary and gender non-conforming folks :). Equality for all, y'all.
