Women's Hackathon

The Backcountry.com Women's Leadership Coalition will host the first-ever Women's Hackathon in Park City, in an effort to expand the presence and influence of women in their software engineering department. A hackathon is an event that gathers people within the software development field under one roof to collaborate on a software project and showcase their skills. At the Backcountry.com Women's Hackathon, participants will be building projects completely from scratch without set assignments, allowing them to maximize creativity and express what they are passionate about. After 24 hours, the finished projects will be judged.

All women, ranging from undergraduate student to seasoned professionals are encouraged to attend. The goal of the event is to heighten awareness of the Backcountry.com brand to women technologists and encourage more women to pursue engineering opportunities at Backcountry.com.

Jill Layfield and other backcountry.com executives will comprise the judging panel, and an iPad Mini will be awarded to each member of the winning team at a closing awards ceremony. Throughout the Hackathon, scouts will be keeping an eye out for outstanding participants who demonstrate an interest in joining the Backcountry.com engineering team. The event is open to female Backcountry.com employees and the public. No professional experience is required and university students are welcome. Bring your favorite device to hack on and any necessary computer components. Network access and food will be provided. For more details about Hackathon or to register for the event go here. Register now before teams are filled.
