Philly continues to strengthen and diversify it’s tech community with the addition of the first hackathon for women* in the area. This Friday at Saturday March 1 & 2, come out to LadyHacks hosted by WHYY where programmers, graphic designers, interface designers and project managers will collaborate intensively on software projects. See more info on the event website, including acknowledgement of the complicated nature of the word “women” and an invitation for men to join the mentor groups. If you’re familiar with The Hacktory’s Hacking the Gender Gap, one of the projects you could potentially work on will be creating a digital version of the timeline. Registration is $10, which you can do here.
