An initiative to encourage women in tech

The last time men and women were equally distributed in tech was 1993. As of 2014, only 19% of the tech work force are women.

On the occasion of International Women's Day, we are calling all women programmers to participate in 3 days of non-stop coding. Either hack individually or as a team of two. Build products around the themes of productivity, social and fun/gamification.
