When it rains hackathons, it pours hackathons. And that’s precisely the forecast for this weekend.
It’s the third year for Mayor Muriel Bowser’s monthlong initiative celebrating innovation in the District, and the third year for its eponymous hackathon, too. This year’s event will focus in on two of InnoMAYtion 2017’s four themes — namely women in STEM and entrepreneurship and youth in STEM and entrepreneurship, organizer Joy M. Whitt told Technical.ly.
“I’m excited for this hackathon because we’ve created an opportunity for women and youth to both help and learn from other women and youth,” Whitt told Technical.ly. “We’ve got some incredible projects lined up, and I’m excited to see how they progress after a day of civic hacking.”
The event takes place all day Saturday at the WaPo offices downtown — find more information, and RSVP to join in, here.
