What is the Resilient Coders Hackathon?

The hackathon is the first step of the application process, it is an opportunity for you to assess your interest in coding, and explore whether Resilient Coders Training Bootcamp is for you. During this one-day program (10am-5pm), you'll learn some Web Development (coding) basics and explore how tech can be used to create change in your community.


What happens after the Hackathon?

A select number of participants will be invited to move on to the next step of the application process. Those admitted into the program will be part of the January-May 2020 cohort, with the long-term goal of being placed in a high-paid job as a software engineer.
