Foss labs, 3rd floor, EMS building, University of the Western Cape


In celebrating women‘s month,  we are hosting a hackathon in order to teach 100+ young girls basic web development skills as well as provide them with insight into careers in Information Systems.

The Information Systems (IS) Department at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) is passionate about making a difference in the lives of students and communities. With the high number of unemployed women in our country, this year we would like to:

1. Encourage female students to pursue careers in Information, Communication and Technology

2. To use ICT to solve Women’s challenges.
