Event Description
Save the date for the 7th annual Philly Codefest at Drexel University!
Presented by the College of Computing & Informatics (CCI), Philly Codefest is a free software and hardware 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.

2019 Theme: Economic Inequality
Philly Codefest 2019, Drexel’s premier hackathon for social good, will be dedicated to generating real-world, scalable solutions to help end economic inequality in Philadelphia. According to a 2018 report by The Pew Charitable Trusts, more than a quarter of Philadelphians — about 400,000 people — live below the poverty line, with Philadelphia’s poverty rate ranking among the highest of the nation’s largest cities. Codefest 2019 will be the first hackathon in the city of Philadelphia to address economic inequality head-on, with projects and challenges centering around the following categories:
  • Financial literacy and security
  • Food insecurity
  • Environmental safety
  • Digital divide
  • Healthcare access and the opioid epidemic
  • Affordable housing and homelessness
  • Voter access
  • Employment equity
