AP-Hi Hackathon 2020!

Register for the AP-Hi Hackathon 2020 Today!

The AP-Hi Hackathon is designed to allow students to ‘break the ice’ with APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) in a welcoming, inclusive environment. Students will be able to explore what they can do with APIs and create a project in which they can showcase their skills!

If you haven’t used an API before, don’t sweat! We will present an introduction to APIs covering what they are and a brief overview with coding examples of various tools and libraries you can use.

CS and Design students of all coding levels are encouraged to register.

Note: Students from PSU, PCC, CCC, and other Portland-metro community colleges are invited. We reserve the right to refuse entry if you do not have a valid student ID upon sign in.

Friday, April 10th from 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Saturday, April 11th from 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM

The WiCS mission is to celebrate diversity by providing networking and support to communities historically underrepresented in CS. We aim to promote the participation and accomplishments of women, gender non-conforming, LGBTQ folk, first-generation immigrants, people of color, and disabled people.
