Hackathons draw in a ton of developers (obviously), but designers come in droves as well. And are equally as important to the success of the team. ‘Cause we all know a brilliantly engineered project in the back-end, falls apart if the front-end looks like garbage. Well our friends at CoastalCreative.com created a beautiful infographic to help designers know what’s BIG in design trends for 2017. Check it out and be inspired for your next hack!
This fall, we took our Lady Problems Hackathon Series global, and we wanted to make sure we found partnerships with companies that truly aligned with our vision. We immediately turned to one of our favorite partners, HPE.
When we decided to launch our Lady Problems Global Hackathon Series, AngelHack wanted to ensure that we not only addressed the issues preventing female entrepreneurship, but also changed the negative narrative of what “Lady Problems” meant. When we met with Proctor & Gamble, we knew they would be the perfect fit to assist us in fulfilling those goals.
We all know that the gender gap in the technology field is vastly unequal. If you are someone who is interested in closing that gap and making a difference, then Women Who Code is your go-to girl. Why? Because Women Who Code is making massive global strides to bridge that gap every day.
It’s hard to say definitively, but trends seem to be leaning away from traditional schooling and more towards people teaching themselves. In the past few years, I’ve had the honor to come across few commendable coders and to my surprise, they didn’t visit any college, few of them not even completed the schooling.
If you’re a good marketing person, you have to be a little crazy. — Jim Metcalf
