Take Back the Night: Hackathon

Saturday, April 21, 2018 - 9:00am - Sunday, April 22, 2018 - 2:00pm
Newcomb Hall, Commonwealth Room

This event is co-sponsored by the Sexual Violence Prevention Coalition, UVA Title IX Office, UVA Honor Committee, and the Maxine Platzer Lynn Women's Center

The TBTN Hackathon is a 24-hour period where you can team up with as many as four people to create a project -- such as an app -- technical or otherwise. These projects are heavily encouraged to be themed around sexual assault prevention. All skill levels and genders are welcome and all you will need is a computer, sleeping bag, and maybe an idea or two! We will have student-led and company-led workshops to improve your tech skills. At the end of the night we will have a demo fair for the finished product or prototype where you pitch to judges. Awards will be given to the best teams that meet certain categories (overall best, social good, most creative, etc.). Again, you don’t have to know any computer science! Free food will be provided!
