Choose your workshop, speed-meet your team, and have ALL the tools needed for your project!

Welcome to AngelHacks 2.0, the hackathon for the world of angels (previously, city of angels)! We're here to help all beginners get the resources and projects they want under their belt -- so we're putting an extra focus on workshops! You'll choose a workshop you want to do, speed-meet a team (or bring your own), and learn ALL the requisite materal to make the project! Afterwards, feel free to customize and hack away, and the best winner per workshop gets a fun prize :)

We're open to people of all ages, even college students who want to get a jumpstart in coding! Email us at hello@angelhacks.org if you have any questions. 

We'll release the specific workshops closer to Dec 18-20, 2020 and if you have any questions, let us know! (Stay tuned for new updates, we might be doing some fun events builing up to the hackathon, like random food deliveries or trivia games!) Additionally, find us on instagram @angelhacks.la!
