Women hackers meet
LinkedIn, which a few weeks ago had announced the first ever global women’s hackday in USA from June 30th to July 1st, has now announced a parallel DevelopHer hackday in Delhi, India, over the same weekend.
There is no better way than a hackday to highlight and celebrate women who are hackers and creators, and to encourage women who are watching from the sidelines to join in.
The rules are the same for the Hackday at Delhi: 24 hours to find a team (or go solo) and hack for a chance to earn some peer cred, try yoga, show off your hacks to judges and maybe win some prizes too.
We would like to invite all women developers and designers to participate at both hackdays. It does not matter how many years of experience you have. If you are a tech veteran, this will be a chance to build something different than your day job. If you are new in technology or a student, this is a good way to practice your skills and meet your peers.
