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.
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 talking 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.
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.
The TTB 2020-Virtual Organizing Team plans to host virtual hackathon for the upcoming hackathon season. We are working to maintain every element of our in-person events within a virtual platform, and to ensure that you have the TechTogether experience you love.
