Presented this year by BrickSimple, Philly Codefest is a 36-hour hackathon that encourages students and professionals from all experience levels and backgrounds to work together to develop innovative solutions to help solve real world challenges.

Philly Codefest is a free software and hardware hackathon that is open to anyone. No coding experience is necessary – just bring your creativity!

Attendees will form teams to work on projects, and then will present their final creations to a panel of judges – comprised of Drexel faculty, sponsors and Philadelphia tech community leaders – for a chance to win awesome prizes.
