We’re hosting the pre-party for the TechLady Hackathon, a full day of training, workshops, and hacking for women who want to beef up their coding skills and teach others what they know. Join us at the Mapbox Garage to kick off the event this Friday, August 7 at 6:30pm and meet an awesome community of women programmers, their supporters, and others excited about making the tech space open to absolutely everyone. RSVP + details here.

This is our third year running supporting the TechLady Hackathon, and I couldn’t be happier to continue the tradition and see such strong support and love in the DC tech community for making it a more diverse and welcoming space. If you’re a woman and interested in coding, I strongly encourage you to check out the main event to learn - and teach. Everyone is welcome at the party - bring your friends!
