SWE Hacks 2020


About SWE Hacks

LOCATION: UW Intellectual House

DATE: Saturday, April 18 2020

TIME: 10AM - 7PM

UW SWE Hacks strives to achieve equality through innovation. We believe that by providing a safe, supportive, and collaborative environment where participants of all skill levels are encouraged to “hack” our mission can be accomplished. The event itself runs for half a day, and we are expecting to host around 100 participants, most of whom are women in engineering.
