October Newsletter

October is upon us once again and the annual hAKathon is looming just 2 short weeks from now. We're very excited for kick-off!
The hAKathon is October 16-18 at 6pm.

Of course, this year will be a little different. We're going fully virtual, but we also have a career and community focus. We're providing mentorship and career skills for developers and connections for businesses to developer talent.

We are currently looking for businesses with projects they'd like some help with. Either a prototype you might have an idea for or maybe smaller tech projects that might take an afternoon.

Here are some examples of projects that went through last year:

1. Assistive Technology of Alaska - door opener 

2. Beaded stream cable tester
Pitch your Project!
We're also looking for Senior technology industry people to mentor the career portion of things doing resume review, having conversations with students about career direction, and doing mock interviews
Sign up as a mentor!
And as always! We know some of you will jump in last minute and that's great. We'd love to have you! But for those signing up early, you'll be entered to win limited edition AK Dev Alliance Swag ; )
Sign up to hack!
