Can I join a team as a beginner?

Utilize self learning platforms such as Codecademy and Free Code Camp to get started. Then, when you feel like you're ready to take things to the next level, projects like these are a great way to start! It doesn't hurt to apply - we'll work with you to find a good fit for your abilities.

What if I'm not a coder?

We need sponsors, media coverage, and volunteers on the day of the event. And we need a great crowd with Phoenix pride to cheer our participants on!

What makes this different from other hackathons?

Designers identify community needs and talk to people.
We form teams and organize our projects before the kickoff date.
Teams are committing 3 weeks to their projects, not just a 24 hour period.
We're here for impact, not profit.

Cool, what else?

Sponsors, prizes, good company, and feeling good about accomplishing something! All in a day's work! If you're looking for a job, update your LinkedIn profile before the last event. Do something awesome, and people will notice!
