Stanford Women in Computer Science's annual hackathon, HackOverflow, will take place on April 14th from 8am to 10pm - this year's theme is the ethics of technology. Through the event, we hope to encourage beginner programmers to participate in hackathons and to experience the practical applications of CS. But you don't need to be a woman or a beginner to participate! Anyone interested in programming, design, or just hackathons in general is welcome.


Any Stanford student is welcome to participate. Although this event is hosted by WiCS, you don't need to be a beginner or a woman to join in!

Students may hack individually or in teams of up to four.
