Developher 2015, Linkedin’s Women’s Hackday
July 17, 2015
As engineers, we constantly innovate, iterate and ultimately, strive to develop things that have an impact on the world. To provide women engineers with a platform to explore their entrepreneurial ideas, we’re proud to announce Linkedin’s annual DevelopHer Hackday Aug 28-29 at LinkedIn's Sunnyvale office. Registration opens today.
The theme for this year’s hack day is Empowering Women, and it’s an opportunity for engineers to brainstorm and build unique hacks to help women develop new ventures, gain financial independence or anything that addresses safety and security, family and wellness, or the gender gap in technology. The possibilities are endless and it doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced or novice hacker, working at a startup or a student entering college, all are welcome.
This year we’ve assembled an exclusive panel of judges to review and give feedback to our hackers. These judges are well-known for their professional achievements and helping to support and inspire the ever growing community of technical women.DevelopHer 2015 Judges:
Jeff Weiner, CEO, Linkedin
Lauren Goode, managing editor, reviews and product, Re/code (soon to be joining The Verge)
Anar Simpson, special advisor, women girls and technology, Mozilla
Tracy Chou, software engineer, Pinterest
And last but not least, the DevelopHer hack day will feature delicious food, yoga sessions, fun swag, awesome prizes, and an environment full of inspiring women.
Last year, more than a 100 hackers participated in Developher, this year we’re expecting many more. To get a taste of the DevelopHer hack day experience, take a look at some of the photos from last year's event.
