How We Got Started

It All Started At GDG DevFest New Haven 2017

It was:
It used:
It incorporated:
It had to be:

Women-focused

Programming lan. from workshop taught previous day
Completed in 6 hours(!)

The Hackathon Challenge

In true 3PRIME spirit, we proudly exclaimed – CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

Our team consisted of frontend leads, devops lead, and researcher. We named the site Women in Tech FTW (For The Win).

 

Our take on the objectives set us apart; where other competitors built software “that girls would like b/c flowers”, we decided being patronizing wasn’t a good motivation, and decided to instead build a resource center for women to find technology education centers, while supplying a historical and contemporary accounting of the impact women in technology have had and continue to have (did you know a woman built the first computer?).

 

Basically, we wanted to make sure that in an industry such as technology that has historically been female-hostile, that we re-inforce access to educational resources, highlight female success in technology, and show that females have always driven innovation in ways that modern dynamics owe a large and unpaid debt to.

WIT-FTW is the brain-child of an organization that cares deeply about technology, knowledge, and growth equity, spawned from a hackathon where the primary participants were men.
