Who will be there? Developers, designers, business backgrounds (HR, Marketing, Sales, Consulting, etc), scientists, students, product developers, entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, educators and the likes.

Do you need any technical skills? NO. Hackathons are a chance for everyone with any background to contribute. You don't need any technical skills to contribute. Come see for yourself.

What will you get? You will meet really cool like minded people that you'll get to work with for a weekend. You will get exposed to what it's like to take an idea and create a concept ready for market. You will learn new skills. The most innovative ideas will have the chance to pitch your ideas to judges. You will get to win top notch prizes.

Will there be help? Yes, Mentors will be present to guide the attendees all through out. There will be seminars on topics that will help you including how to pitch, business model, and design thinking. And there will be panels by amazing speakers on topics that will help you form your project.

Can men attend? Yes, we are inclusive and open to everyone. We promote gender equality and bridging the gap in the technology and startup spaces.


Can companies send delegations? Yes! have them register with their company emails

Who forms the teams? The Girls in Tech Dublin team will form the teams to ensure it's multidisciplinary. If delegations or friends want to stick together, let us know by contacting us directly dublin@girlsintech.org and we will try without any promises. Typically most people tend to want to separate because you will be interested in solving different challenges and you will still see your friends the whole time. The purpose of a hackathon is to meet and collaborate with new people as well. You will learn more from people you don't know yet. That's the fun of it.
