Is CodeDay a "hackathon"?

Kind of.
Although it follows the usual format, CodeDay isn't a traditional hackathon.
Some key differences:
  • CodeDay has few prizes and little swag
  • you won't find/meet companies directly recruiting for internships
  • judging is done by attendees
  • no business plans or pitch decks! (CodeDay is focused on creativity)
  • lots of attendees are newer to coding
If that sounds like fun to you, we'd love to have you!
