Trans*H4CK Boston Coming Soon

Dr. Kortney Ziegler is getting ready to take Trans* H4CK on the road again, and this time the innovative hackathon and speaker series is headed to New England.

To be precise, Trans*H4CK Boston will be taking place at the Harvard Innovation Lab November 14-16, and spaces for the latest version of it are filling up fast.

Trans* H4CK Boston in partnership with the Harvard Innovation Lab will also continue the conservations about diversity and entrepreneurship in the tech world that sadly continue to ignore the contributions of trans people.

So for those of you in the Boston area, if you   haven't signed up for it yet, you may wish to do so. 

I witnessed and was a judge for the inaugural Trans* H4CK in Oakland last year and it was an amazing experience.  I enjoyed watching teams of hackers of all genders, social justice advocates , developers,  and designers building apps and applications to solve real world trans problems over a weekend.

bJust bring your laptops and your ideas.   Trans*H4CK will provide the amazing speakers, the food, the encouragement and mentors to help you turn your ideas into something that empowers our tech savvy trans community.

And you'll have a lot of fun and meet some amazing people if you do check out Trans*H4CK Boston.
