This weekend in San Francisco, join Tropo for a special kind of hackathon welcoming first time hackers. Everyone Hacks is designed to create safe space while expanding what you think you’re capable of. In a collaborative setting, you’ll produce a surprising amount of work in a very short period of time, both with people you have only just met and old friends. The event is reaching out to women who are interested in these events, and is definitely transgender and queer friendly. Male-bodied folk are also welcome.
