The hack4ladies is a women-only hackathon and is organized by the Lenze Group (Lenze Digital, encoway and logicline). From May 05 to 07, girls and young women interested in IT will meet, form teams and work on developing prototypes and concepts within 48 hours.
No matter if you like to develop concepts, design or program - if you are interested in IT, the #hack4ladies is just right for you. Develop ideas, build, play, hack, share, learn and have fun!
But why go through all this? Well, at around 17%, the proportion of women in the IT industry in Germany is very low. To make IT careers more attractive, you as a prospective or already successful female IT professional can provide creative and exciting implementation ideas for products, apps and services at Hack4Ladies.
We welcome (aspiring) female software developers, computer scientists, graphic designers, marketing managers, entrepreneurs, business developers, UX developers but also students, pupils and professionals who want to work together on technical solutions for the world of tomorrow.
It's not about creating finished products, but sharing your ideas with other women, building inspiring hacks, learning from our mentors and just having fun. Our goal at #hack4ladies is to bring creative minds and different skill sets together.
We want to see you come up with new ideas and how the fun of playing with technology translates into your presentations and pitches at the end of the hackathon. So if you're up for the challenge, bring your skills to the event and work on something cool.
