Latinos In Tech Hackathon

April 27, 2019 @ 9:00 am - April 28, 2019 @ 2:00 pm



The Latinos in Tech and PayScale invite you to participate in a Hackathon – a 2 day event to explore, learn, experiment, and create. All you need is a laptop and power source! Come Saturday morning with ideas to pitch and collaborate with a team towards a working demo by Sunday afternoon.



Who is this event for?

Hackathons were traditionally events for engineers and developers, working together intensely with a common goal. Even if you are not a developer we need marketers, researchers and designers! Come grow your budding coding skills or mentor those who are. You don’t need to identify as Latinx to attend. Anyone who is committed to skill building, community building, and diversity in technology is welcome!



Location: PayScale

1000 1st Ave S, Seattle, WA 98134
