CodeDay is a 24 hour codeathon/hackathon in which attendees will pitch ideas, work in groups to build software, and have fun with other students.
High school and college students of all experience levels will hang out with friends, meet new people, make something cool, and become a better programmer in 24 hours.
Prior programming experience is NOT necessary. We’ve had people who have never written a line of code in their life work with veteran programmers to build award-winning software. The goal of the event is to help people learn to code, even if they never have before.
