About this event

This is not a Girl Develop It DC event, but we'd love to have a big Girl Develop It presence participating!  If you've never been to a hackathon before, this will be a great first experience to come see what they're all about.  ALL SKILL LEVELS ARE WELCOME!   Come learn, contribute, mentor with us!   

You MUST register on the hackathon eventbrite page linked at the bottom of the event description. 

You’re invited to register for the first ever Code for Crittenton Hackathon! This is a different hackathon – it is targeted for female developers of all skill levels (beginners too!). The purpose of the hackathon is to develop a web page, mobile app, or some other app to benefit Crittenton Services of Greater Washington ( Here is the information for the day:

As part of the development phase, a group of Crittenton Services girls will meet developers and learn about technical career fields. They will also have an opportunity to advise the teams on how to make their app more teen-friendly.

This is a great way to help out an awesome nonprofit, mentor teenage girls, and learn. We hope you register to participate as a programmer or a mentor/volunteer (
