What is Wacode?
Wacode is an annual 12-hour hackathon held at the Blume Conference Center on Baylor University's campus. We want to bring in students, professionals, hobbyists together to build, collaborate, and share their knowledge.
Students spend all day building apps/websites/software to help combat issues prevalent in and around the Waco community. Last year our prompts focused on improving literacy rates, combating food insecurity, and assisting at-risk youth.
Our goal is to give our students a wonderful opportunity to:
Learn Modern Development Techniques; Guest lectures and workshops hosted by industry professionals with decades of experience.
Code For Social Good; Our programming prompts are focused on solving important issues in our local Waco community.
Build Their Professional Network; Professionals on-site looking to hire on new talent for internship and full-time opportunities.
Why we need your help:
In the past year, we hosted 60+ hackers. We wanted to make the experience as wonderful as possible for everyone! Which doesn't come cheap.. our budget consists of:
- Food (Snacks & Meals)
- Cleaning Supplies
- Shirts for all participants
