Who doesn’t love a good hackathon?! Unite Hacks, a 12-hour, student-led, in-person hackathon is happening this weekend in Oakland, CA. We can’t wait to see what these talented developers can build.
OAKLAND, CA — A new generation of hackers has appeared on the coding scene. Unite Hacks, founded by six teenagers in the San Francisco Bay Area and The Bahamas, is a brand-new hackathon for students, by students. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the goal of Unite Hacks is to inspire young people with the world of computer science, bringing them together to design community projects.
“Our vision is to educate young people by providing them with opportunities to network, learn, and be inspired — to indulge the next generation of coders, allowing them to develop and flourish, not only professionally but personally too.– Unite Hacks 2022 Team
We are Uniting hackers from all over the world to inspire, create, innovate, and utilize technology. We are providing a place to come together and build a project irrespective of the level of experience, demographics, or background — turning young people’s visions into a reality!”
The event, supported by sponsors like Beezwax, is free for all who wish to participate with no experience necessary. Its goal is to introduce students to computer programming as well as connect students interested in coding from across the Bay Area. Attendees are free to create any kind of project and can even host their own informal workshops. Unite Hacks 2022 will take place on Saturday, October 22nd from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM at Circuit Launch in Oakland. The event welcomes all high school and upper middle school aged students with proof of vaccination. Interested in learning more? Visit https://www.unitehacks.com
