What is the Girls in Tech Virtual Hackathon?

Technology advancements including the internet have helped us as a society grow more and more connected. This exchange of information encompasses IoT technologies which include data, software, and hardware. This year, the IoT market is expected to grow to $520 billion. Success in the area of IoT will require a thorough strategy and business understanding. Currently, the main barriers to adopting such technologies are security, ease of integration with legacy systems, and return on investment.

At Girls in Tech, we are committed to empowering women engineers, product developers, UX / UI designers, and data scientists to explore all the avenues in which we can lower the barrier of IoT innovation. Join us in developing solutions that can help companies leverage machine-to-machine information exchange in real-time and in a safe manner using technologies not limited to Cloud Computing (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud), Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning, etc.
