From the web site:
Join LaunchCode, GlobalHack and The Prosper Institute on Saturday, August 13, 2016 for a beginner-friendly event where you’ll work in teams over the course of a day to design an app or website that solves a real-world problem. You’ll use prototyping tools, drag and drop editors, mockups, and anything else you think of to visually present your idea to the community. Participants will work in small teams (up to 4) and will have ~6 hours to prototype your idea and present it on stage. During the event, you’ll learn how to use industry design tools, network with like-minded people with diverse backgrounds, and work to solve a real-world problem as a small group. This event requires no coding experience, and is open to individuals of all skill sets and backgrounds.
