Major League Hacking 2019 Hackathon Season

What is TechTogether Boston?

TechTogether Boston, previously known as SheHacks Boston, is Boston's largest student-run hackathon open to all female and non-binary individuals!
Our mission is to...
  • Empower women and non-binary individuals in technology to achieve
  • Provide them with opportunities to explore the tech industry in an inspiring, encouraging, and energizing environment
  • Create a community of inclusivity within the tech industry

Why are all-female and non-binary hackathons important?

Females and non-binary individuals are currently underrepresented at hackathons on a global level. We aim to help establish a space for women and non-binary individuals in tech, by creating an environment that is inclusive, inspiring, and informative. At TechTogether Boston, we have chosen to do our part to correct this imbalance by creating new opportunities for the under-represented, and to cultivate a lasting influence on the future of inclusivity in tech.

Our official mascot, Byte, is a cartoon-like blob that loves to hack and learn!
