TechTogether Boston 2020 Virtual


Boston's largest all-female, femme,
and non-binary hackathon.

November 6th - November 8th, 2020


At TechTogether Boston, we're looking to shape the way women and non-binary people get involved with tech.

We aim to create an inclusive environment to encourage more underrepresented people to either get introduced to the world of technology or harness their skills to create projects of their own.

With the support of our community, sponsors, and industry leaders, we can chip away at the gender gap in technology. From students with non-technical majors who are interested in breaking into tech, to seasoned hackathon veterans looking for help to build out complex, groundbreaking products - we aim to support our hackers.

Our testimonials through the year

Melissa Lin - Organizer

Being a TTB organizer was a great experience for me! I liked that I could help empower underepresented groups in tech and meet and collaborate with amazing people in the process.

The most rewarding for me is definitely seeing the weekend of the hackathon come together. We spend months of work on this event so it really is gratituding to see how all that work culminates into one weekend. Getting to talk to all the external people involved and knowing how the event made an impact is worth all the long nights and meetings worth it.

Sarina Simon - Director

I love being a TTB organizer. It is an amazing experience and I love working with such dedicated women.

The most rewarding part is at the event taking to the hackers. Being a TTB organizer, we join the team because our personal values align with the TTB mission. Talking to hackers, I noticed that they also have similar values and it's great to see that for 36 hours women and femme non-binary from around the country come together and empower each other.

Hana - Hacker

TechTogether was my 4th hackathon and my favorite hackathon!

I wouldn't have been able to attend the event if it weren't for the free bussing! Once I arrived, the entire stadium was filled with super supportive mentors who helped us with out project. TechTogether was unlike any hackathon I had ever been to because of how comfortable I felt there. So comfortable that we decided to branch out and use hardware for the first time to learn something new!

My favorite memory meeting tech professionals who helped us with out project and connecting with them to learn more about the growing industry.
