Girls in Tech Virtual Hackathon Sprint Week 2 Update

Hi Girls in Tech Community,

We hope that your first week of the Hard of Hearing Virtual Hackathon Sprint was productive and that your project is progressing well! 

A few reminders: 

  1. The Slack Workspace is great – Join our Slack Workspace to find teammates, resources, and get some help from HPE mentors:
  2. You can find challenges, info, and the submissions portal here –
  3. You can still find your team –

Looking for extra team members?

  • Introduce yourself in the # find-teammates Slack channel 
  • Let others know what project you and your team plan to work on and the type of support you’re looking for (i.e. UX Designers, Software Developers, Data Scientists, Project Managers, etc.)
  • Keep an eye out for Slack updates in case individuals reply to your thread and would like to join your team.

Seeking a team to join?

  • Continue to post in Slack and reach out to other individuals who have indicated in the #find-teammates channel that they don’t have a team. 
  • Review the Devpost participant section to find team members. (Not all participants joined the Slack Workspace.)
  1. Submit your project before the deadline – When you’re ready to submit your project, you can do so on our Devpost here.


Best of luck!

Your Girls in Tech Team
