"Changing the world shouldn't be hard. While spurring bold inventions and founding nonprofits can make huge impacts, even a small project you make from the comfort of your home can help make the world a better place. At Helloo World, we look to have visitors to interact with activities, learn about the problems we face on a daily basis and invite them to find ways to address them through code."
"Women make up over 50% of the population, but only earn 18% of computer science bachelor's degrees in the United States. TecHacks is a hackathon aiming to bridge that gender gap by enabling female students to find a passion in computer science and problem solving, while creating a supportive environment of other like-minded females to compete and work with. This year we are going virtual! Girls from all over the world have a chance to code, compete, connect, and win prizes."
"Hack the 6ix is the largest summer student run, not for profit hackathon located in the heart of Toronto. Every year, we select 400+ participants from a pool of over 1500 remarkable developers, designers, and innovators. We believe the diversity and talent of our hackers contribute greatly to the success of our event. Now in its sixth iteration, Hack the 6ix has established itself as a key player in the Toronto tech ecosystem and provides a platform for students to present their ideas of the future."
"Enterprises—huge, distributed, complex businesses, government agencies, and other large organizations—account for an enormous portion of the global economy. Yet people who engage with enterprises—employees, customers, and managers—face experiences that are tedious, fragmented, complicated, and just plain awful, especially when compared with consumer-facing experiences. It’s time to right these wrongs—and that’s why we created the Enterprise UX conference series."
"Angel Investing School trains professionals from all backgrounds on how to get started with investing in startups. We provide a concise online curriculum via real-time webinars, led by experienced angel investors in combination with a peer to peer network of aspiring investors."
"Learn from your industry peers about trends in CX, hear thoughtful advice on growing and scaling teams, and get insight into how legacy brands are evolving their customer support solutions. We carefully plan our agenda to include lots of curated social time as well, so you’ll be able to meet new contacts and build lasting, genuine relationships. Most of our attendees are Customer Support Managers, Directors of CX, Heads of Support, Customer Advocates, and even QA and Documentation Specialists. You’ll be in good company all weekend!"
"A three day virtual festival exploring the evolution and future of design, focusing on new and emerging technologies. Bringing together people from different backgrounds and from all around the world to collaborate and network around the shared topic of UX & Design. Featuring 18 expert speakers and 6 workshops as well as excellent networking opportunities: You will have the chance to connect with up to 500 UXperts!"
"Big Design is a non-profit organization that provides education, professional development, and community service opportunities to design professionals and students. Over the past 15 years, we have raised over $100,000 to support the design community. Big Design has given away free conference passes, sponsored global events to hear from under-represented voices, started two college scholarships, performed free portfolio workshops, supported Hurricane Katrina victims, and more. We hope you will attend the conference, and build your future legacy."
"A two-day virtual experience with 33 total sessions, including presentations, thought leadership, and hands-on breakout sessions full of content from industry leaders and Pendo experts. During a year of uncertainty and unrest, Pendo will host a series of talks, discussions, workshops and virtual networking sessions exploring what it takes for product teams to rewrite their playbooks. Day one is free and open to all."
"Calling all entrepreneurs, product and marketing leaders, technologists, UXers and data scientists. For this year’s Fall event, we’re bringing it back to our roots with an "un-conference" focused on the role of data in our lives as problem-solvers, business builders and market-creators: "The Data All Around Us." From market research to IoT, user adoption to supply chain analytics -- data informs what we do, enables what we build, optimizes how we deliver and steers the direction of business."
"Software Freedom Day is an event held all across the world to celebrate the usage of Free and Open Source Software. The event aims to sensitize students about the virtues of Open Source Software. Each year the event has seen growing number of participants and our past speakers have come from prestigious software companies like Facebook, Microsoft and Google . The aim of SFD is to bring together developers and students of all levels on a single platform to share their thoughts, ideas and inspirations."
"DXS is the first Argentine conference on innovation in services and business focused from a design perspective. A day full of inspiration, talks, workshops and debates together with the ecosystem of industry experts and professionals. DXS is the place to connect with people and organizations with an interest in creating people-centered services and experiences. It does not matter if you have been doing this for years or if you are just venturing, something new you will take away!"
