A hackathon is an event where individuals or teams work on technical projects in a short period of time (24-36 hours). With the help of workshops and mentors you can build an app, a website, a robot—the possibilities are endless!
Codetivate is for anyone but particularly for low-income youths and people of marginalized genders who are 14 years or older.
No, it’s free! ✨
This year, Codetivate will run virtually and use platforms like Discord and Zoom. We will provide more details on how to participate as we get closer to the date.
Codetivate is beginner friendly! We have introductory workshops tailored to first-time hackers and a unique high school program to help assimilate all our hackers. If you want to fine tune your skills, join our community of learners on Discord.
While you have the option to work alone, if you want to submit your project you must work with at least one other person. Don’t worry if you don’t have a team—you’ll have plenty of opportunities to find one virtually! Codetivate will be hosting a variety of team formation activities throughout the first day, and we will also have a Discord channel dedicated to team formation leading up to and during the event.
Teams can consist of 2-4 hackers. You can form a team before the hackathon, and there will be Team Formation events prior to the event. We highly encourage that advanced hackers bring on beginner hackers to mentor throughout the event.
Your project will be submitted through Devpost. Click on the Submit Project button at the top of the site to access the Devpost. Your submission must include a video (no longer than 2 minutes) that showcases your project, a basic description of your project, and the challenge(s) for which you want your project to be considered
All workshops, activities and events will be taking place via Zoom and livstreamed to our YouTube channel. Meetings links will be shared via Discord.
Mentoring will all be done through Discord. To request a mentor, fill out the form on the Discord channel and a mentor will be in touch with you as soon as they are available!
Make sure to check the event schedule to stay up to date on important hackathon deadlines and everything you need to know about what’s going on throughout the weekend! Announcements and reminders will also be broadcasted on the Discord server in case you forget.
