    CODE documentary is a relevant and timely documentary exploring why more American women and minorities do not pursue careers in computer science, despite high demand and lucrative job opportunities. The film highlights breakthrough efforts that are producing more diverse programmers and shows how a critical gender gap can be closed. CODE asks: what would society gain from having more women and minorities code, and how do we get there?

    UWF Codefest (formerly Hackathon)

    The University of West Florida will be hosting its inaugural Codefest (formerly Hackathon) on April 8th-10. 

    A codefest (also known as a hack day, hackfest or hackathon) is an event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development and hardware development, including graphic designers, interface designers and project managers, collaborate intensively on software projects. Occasionally, there is a hardware component as well. Codefests typically last between a day and a week. Some codefests are intended simply for educational or social purposes, although in many cases the goal is to create usable software. Codefests tend to have a specific focus, which can include the programming language used, the operating system, an application, an API, or the subject and the demographic group of the programmers. In other cases, there is no restriction on the type of software being created.

    The main goals of the codefest are as follows:

    • To provide an atmosphere for those involved in software development to meet and work on an area of interest
    • To educate new software developers and provide an opportunity for people to learn about the development process
    • To network organizations and industry professionals
    • To solve a problem or develop a product with beneficial purpose for an organization, region, or cause

    There are many reasons that starting a codefest will be beneficial to all parties in the region. Some of the main benefits that we foresee are:

    • The chance for companies and organizations within the region to network with and identify talented individuals for their group.
    • The chance to bring talented individuals to the region who would have otherwise not have visited Pensacola
    • To develop products that are beneficial to the region and help solve a problem that is currently faced in the area
    • To give students from the region insights into the software development process and the chance to network with and learn from professionals

    Planning for this has begun and volunteers are needed for the following areas.

    • Contest Development – we need help in identifying a project that will be beneficial to the area or a local organization, we also need to develop the specifics of the event including the judging criteria and process and the formation of competing teams (the goal is to develop a plan that will allow both industry professionals and students to work together) Tasks include - identifying a theme, determining judging criteria, identifying judges and mentors, helping to develop schedule.

    • Marketing – we need people who can reach out to others in neighboring regions to help us advertise our event. Many people will be interested in this event, but they need to know about it first. We will also need support in developing flyers and the event’s website. Tasks include - Helping with marketing strategy, social media promotion, website development, contacting potential participants.
    • Fund raising – we will need people to help reach out to possible sponsors. Sponsorship can take many forms including sponsoring any of the items in the budget list or helping by sponsoring a prize for the winner. Tasks include - contacting potential sponsors, raising funds for prizes and costs.
    • Volunteering and logistics – we will need individuals who can lead a team of volunteers during the event. Tasks include - helping with campus guidance, food, signage, flyer disbursement, registration, distributing swag, and monitoring facilities, ordering supplies, helping to develop and run schedule.
