MentorHacks: register for crash course in hackathons

Hackathons can be intimidating, especially if you're not familiar with the local civic hacking scene.

Hackathons can be intimidating, especially if you’re not familiar with the local civic hacking scene.

That’s why the Urban Technology Project is hosting MentorHacks, a crash course in hackathons on July 20. The day-long event aims to be a space for experienced and inexperienced technologists to learn from each other. MentorHacks will offer workshops on HTML/CSS and WordPress and then participants will put their new skills to use.

RSVP here.

Sign up to volunteer here. Email mentorhacks AT gmail.com with any questions.

MentorHacks is on July 20 at the Department of Making + Doing at 3711 Market Street from 8:30 a.m to 6:00 p.m.

It’s worth noting, too, that there have been other efforts to bring more hackers into the local hackathon world, like Philly’s first women-only hackathon LadyHacks.

The Urban Technology Project is a workforce development organization that runs the Digital Service Fellowship program that trains young adults to be IT technicians.
