Transcript of EveryoneHacks summary

EveryoneHacks is a hackathon requested by HP to focus on education with an eye towards inclusion of women and other under represented demographics in the tech industry. It took place the evening of January 18th through evening of Sunday, January 20th and included lightning talks, workshops, and prizes.
It was organized and facilitated by Geeks Without Bounds with assistance from Where Are The Women and The Next Web. Additional sponsorship and assistance was provided by PG&E, Tropo, and SendGrid, with space provided by NextSpace and prizes by Renaissance.io and No Starch Press. Summary The Numbers Eventbrite page views: Registered Checked In: Teams completed 3415 300 123 9 Our venue capacity was 150 60% attrition is standard in the Bay Area How People Felt About the Event Where We Can Improve Where Your Money Went We provided 6 meals, coffee, beer, t-shirts, and tiny things like post-it notes and cups. The GWOB team came in from Seattle. Less overhead on food: We offered daycare but no one wanted it: Curating challenges in advance: While each food order was placed for the same number of people, restaurants give different amounts of food for that. Keeping in mind how people return to the event or drop, along with perceptions of appropriate amounts of food, should allow smaller excesses of food. This limits waste as well as cost. One challenge which faces women in the tech industry is not being able to participate in events such as these due to being the primary care taker in a household. By offering childcare, we hoped to welcome these folk as well. Perhaps due to lack of overlapping social circles, no one registered for subsidized childcare. We hope to reach these participants in the future through different social vectors. At humanitarian and disaster-focused hackathons, GWOB often helps to curate challenges in advance. This ensures high quality, research, and applicability of tools developed at the event. While all of the projects at #everyonehacks were education-focused, and a high population of instructors helped those projects be relevant to the classroom, more advance work can be done in the future.
