Coding Beyond Competition

Vienna is calling for the next Female Coders Hackathon!

The success story of the hackathon continues and so we are looking forward to holding a hackathon with you for the fourth time. On April 13, 2024, the time has come and we are happy to be invited to Cloudflight. The projects that have been created so far are impressive - from an app that reminds us to water plants to a travel blog and an analysis of how the pandemic has affected our travel behavior.

Teams are usually formed on the spot and a wide range of talents are needed - from the concept and design to the implementation in code, it all happens in just one day. Whether you're experienced or just starting to get interested in IT, a Hackathon is a fantastic opportunity to create, learn and have a great time together - so go ahead, sign up. 😉

Our hackathon aims to be a safe space for groups that are normally under-represented in IT, that's why our hackathon is for FINTA*s

Tracks

At the Hackathon, we all get together and work on our own ideas in small groups. However, if you don't have any ideas, that doesn't mean you can't participate - you might find a local team you want to join or work on a project we suggest!

We will prepare small projects in different areas to get you started and show you what can be done in one day!

1. Artificial Intelligence

How does Google know if my picture shows a dog or a cat? How can a program even learn such behaviour? We will show you what’s behind it in the Data Science Track.

Do you have your own idea for a project in the field of artificial intelligence? That's great! Our mentors can help you with the implementation and are always available to answer your questions.

2. Web

You always wanted to create your own website but don’t know where to start? In this track we will work in groups to create your own web projects, whether browser-based games or a portfolio website – everything is possible

3. IoT – Internet of Things

The IOT track is about understanding and getting to know the interaction between hardware and software. Whether it's automated control of lights, blinds or the coffee machine, IOT can make things easier for you! In the IOT track, we will try our first experiments in this area - we will program with hardware that we have prepared.

4. Free Track

You have a great idea but it doesn't fit into any of the available tracks or maybe you even have a project that you want to take up again? No problem, that's exactly what the free track is for! Come with your own ideas, find others who can support you. Our mentors* will give you the best possible support!

Frequently Asked Questions

 

I'm not a programmer (yet). Can I still come?

Of course! The hackathon is designed to support newcomers with their first programming projects, but also to give experienced programmers* the chance to spend a day working on focused projects. We would like to FINTAs from different backgrounds and disciplines, as a hackathon requires a wide range of skills - from software development and copywriting to UI/UX design.

In three of our four tracks, we will provide instructions that explain the first steps in the topic and enable you to implement your own ideas. Our mentors* will be at your side throughout the day. Just bring a good mood, motivation to learn new things and fun!

I have never participated in a hackathon before. Can I still participate?

Of course! There is a first time for everything. smile

Is this a womens only event?

Not only! Our hackathon is a safe space for groups that are normally underrepresented in IT, which is why we invite all IT-interested FINTA*s aged 15 and over to our hackathon.

How much does it cost to attend?

Thanks to our generous partners and sponsors, this hackathon is absolutely free of charge for participants. We will provide the infrastructure and catering to get you through the day.
However, since there are only limited places, we ask you to register reliably online.

What do I have to bring?
Please bring your laptop and charging devices. If you don't have a suitable laptop, you are welcome to borrow one - just let us know when you register and we will prepare a loaner for you.

Bring a lot of motivation, joy and enthusiasm! smile

Who are the mentors?

Our mentors are people who work in and around IT - including as Java or web developers or data scientists. They will be on site all day to help you with any questions or problems you may have.

Do I have to come as a team?

You can come to the hackathon alone or in a team. However, we ask you to register individually so that we have a good overview of the number of participants.

If you don't have a team yet, that's no problem at all! We will find groups at the beginning of the day of the hackathon.
