WHAT IS XXHACKS?
All Girls Hackathon
march 07 2020
Welcome to the fourth year of XXHacks! Our event has been growing every year and we're so proud of our over 300 female coders who have attended XXHacks in the past.
XXHacks is open to girls who want to create computer-related projects with a little bit of coding. Our goal is to bridge the gender gap between women and men by encouraging girls to pursue computer science or any variation of STEM fields through our hackathon. Our event is totally free with cool swag and meals & snacks given throughout the day. If you want to come, make sure to register (while this hackathon is mostly geared towards female attendees, we accept any programmers who'd like to flourish their knowledge with us)!
