"I’m not exaggerating when I say it seems like I learned more on the weekend of TechTogether Boston than I did in my first CS class. I built my very first Flask backend, successfully used a very complicated API with an SDK (I didn’t even know what SDK meant!), not to mention I learned a lot about finance and investment (pretty useful skills you need as an adult)."

"TechTogether completely changed my outlook on hackathons and has helped me gain confidence in both myself and my technical abilities."

"These three girls made me feel very empowered, and I quickly forgot my fears when first coming into the event...I invite all individuals, especially those who ever thought about participating in these events but chose not to because of fear of leaving their comfort zones, to attend the next TechTogether hackathon."
