YESWECODE at Essence Festival
July 3, 2014 - July 6, 2014
ESSENCE®, the Rebuild the Dream Innovation Fund and #YesWeCode will launch our first hackathon in New Orleans, LA during the ESSENCE FESTIVAL ™ weekend. Our hackathon will gather innovators, coders, and designers to build and design apps that drive real solutions for our communities, educators, and families.
The Festival will also host the #YesWeCode Tech Village at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Meet organizations that are leading the charge to help low-opportunity youth learn to code computers.
