Thanks for an amazing FinTech & Blockchain Hackathon 2018

Get ready for the HLAG

11-13 October 2019


Registration soon


Get hands-on at the annual Geek Girls Carrots two-day Hackathon for developers, graphic designers, programmers, application architects, social media specialists, system architects, and women with startup ideas.

We want to engage the participants in creating solutions – made by women – by competing in many different challenges provided by our partners and participants themselves. At the end of the "Hack like a Girl" hackathon, created results and prototypes will be rewarded and introduced to all conference attendees.



You will spend this weekend by hacking and building a product together with your team and support of the mentors. Your projects should be built from scratch.


No matter your expertise, you will learn something new there. Attendees range from newbies to seniors. Participants and mentors are here to cooperate and enjoy hacking.


It is not work! There will be plenty of time to relax, enjoy some cool music and coffee with amazing people. We’ll be providing healthy and tasty meals and sport classes to keep your mind, body, soul balanced while coding.

Geek Girls Carrots Berlin is a chapter of the global organisation focused on connecting, learning and inspiring women in Tech and IT.

We create community by organising meetings, workshops, and other events, which gather people to share their knowledge and experience. We bring together female admins, developers, designers, women with startup ideas, computer science students and many more.


What do I need to do to attend?

Please, register for the hackathon on Eventbrite. Since we want to make sure that those who register also show up, we kindly ask you for a deposit of 10€ via Eventbrite. The full amount will be transferred back to you after the Event.

What if I don’t have an idea or a team?

You shouldn’t be concerned about the lack of an idea or a team. We are organising a kick-off meeting 1 day before the Hackathon. During the meeting, you will be able to find out more about the projects, form a team of your own or join an existing one. You will also have a chance to chat with the members of the closed Slack group that was created for the Hackathon.

Can non-developers also join the event?

Sure! We welcome various professions, like designers, product managers, marketing managers, data scientists, etc.

What kind of hackers are you looking for?

We are looking for all kind of IT creative and innovative people: software, hardware, mobile, web with any coding language. We search for friendly and enthusiastic people with a global perspective.

How much experience do I need?

Anyone is free to apply, but we focus mostly on people with some technical experience. The applicants will be evaluated fairly and with the use of multiple filters.

What is the official language of the Hackathon?

The official language of our event is English. Of course, you can also communicate in German but you should keep in mind the non-German speakers. Let’s make sure that no one feels left out.

What do I need to take with me?

First of all, try to come as well-rested as possible. You will need a clear mind and fresh ideas. Other than this, all you have to bring along is your laptop and a charger. We will take care of the rest.

Will I get to know the API and other participants before the event starts?

Yes, we will organise a kick-off meeting on Friday, one day before the event starts. This way all the participants will get to know each other. The API will be presented by mentors from each companies during venue.

Are there any prizes?

“Hack like a girl” is all about diversity, collaboration, meeting new friends and exchanging experience rather than about competition. Thus, prizes are not the focus, just a bonus. We will provide more detail on the sponsored prizes in the near future.

If you want to encourage more women to work in IT, why is it not a women-only hackathon?

We want to support women to be more present in the IT world. For that we want to encourage women to take on more jobs in IT and to encourage men who work beside them to be more supportive of that. In our opinion envolving men in this process is just as important as encouraging women!

Is there a code of conduct for the hackathon?

Sure, we want to ensure that everyone's opinion and work is respeted. All attendees, sponsors and mentors at the hackathon are required to agree with the following code of conduct. We are expecting cooperation from all participants to help ensuring a safe environment for everybody. Our hackathon is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any parts of our events, including talks, workshops, Twitter and other online media. Attendees violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from this hackathon and/or any future meetups at the discretion of the organisers.

What happens with participants projects after Hackathon?

The intellectual property of participants is a highly sensitive issue. The ideas that emerge in the Hack like a Girl hackathon are the property of the participants and cannot be used by the sponsors without prior agreement. However, after consultation with the participants, it should be agreed that your company may use the ideas developed or develop them together with the participants.
