8AM - 10PM April 14th @ Packard Atrium


Stanford Women in Computer Science's annual hackathon, HackOverflow, will take place on April 14th from 8am to 10pm - this year's theme is the ethics of technology. Through the event, we hope to encourage beginning programmers to participate in hackathons and to experience the practical applications of CS. But you don't need to be female or a beginner to participate! Anyone interested in programming, design, or just hackathons in general is welcome.

This year, we are partnering with Stanford AI Group and Stanford Applied Cybersecurity for Hack Week, a week of workshops leading up to our Saturday hackathon (featuring free boba and collectible backpack pins). Come check out Protecting User Privacy on Wednesday and Deep Dive into EternalBlue (Ethical Hacking) on Thursday, and don't forget to come to HackOverflow on Saturday!


What time is it?

The hackathon is from 8AM to 10PM on Saturday, April 14th 2018. Registration is open all day, so drop by anytime!

Where is it?

The hackathon is located in the atrium of the Packard Electrical Engineering building.

Who can participate?

Any Stanford student is welcome to participate. Although this event is hosted by WiCS, you don't need to be a beginner or a woman to join in!

What will you provide at the event?

We'll be providing breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus swag and boba!

Our prizes include GoPro HEROs, Google Home Minis, and mini drones! For the full list, check out our Devpost.
