Hack-The-Freeze: Hackathon| Flatiron School Seattle
July 12 @ 5:30 pm - July 13 @ 6:00 pmFree
Tired of dealing with that big villain in our social scene — the Seattle Freeze? Join our one-of-a-kind hackathon to tame this beast once and for all. We’re calling in a scrappy community of local innovators to “Hack The Freeze.”
People of all backgrounds and skills are welcome, and no prior coding experience is required. Whether you’re a coding wizard or you think Java is a trendy word for coffee, “Hack The Freeze” welcomes anyone who’s curious about how technology can create connection.
We’ll form teams Friday night at a kickoff featuring food, mingling, and a chat about the Freeze. On Saturday, the teams will develop their ideas to boost belonging in Seattle and go deep on discussions about tech and community. We encourage you to engage with fellow Freeze “melters” and leave with new, lasting connections.
FYI: THIS IS A TWO DAY EVENT. SEE BELOW FOR SCHEDULE
Friday, July 12, 5:30-9:00pm | Intro to Hack-The-Freeze
Saturday, July 13, 8:45am-8:00pm | Main event of Hack-The-Freeze
