British Columbia's all-women* hackathon

March 6-7, 2021


Join us on International Women*’s Day at British Columbia’s first and largest all-women* hackathon to explore new technologies and celebrate women* in tech!

We're here to break stereotypes and create a safe space for women* where they can learn new skills, build confidence, and discover a supportive community. Whether you're a first time hacker or a veteran, we want to help you take your next steps in tech. Come join us for a fun weekend of hacking with amazing workshops and social events!
* The cmd-f team would like to acknowledge that "female" or "women" is not an accurate description for many people and it may make some feel unwelcome. We use * to specifically and intentionally include cis and trans women, as well as women-identifying non-binary, agender, or intersex people and other gender minorities.

Main Values

cmd-f was established according to our 3 main values:

Building Confidence

Imposter syndrome is a major issue facing many women* in tech. cmd-f aims to help you build confidence and escape outdated stereotypes through our workshops and amazing mentor support-system. Let's stop feeling as if we are "not good enough".


Whether you have never coded before, or you dream in assembly, come out and challenge yourself to build something you can be proud of in a fast-paced 24-hour competition. Learn new skills in our series of hands-on workshops and apply them to your innovative project ideas.

Women* Supporting Women*

Discover a community of like-minded, creative, and passionate individuals. Build lasting bonds and share experiences and stories. We're all here under one cause – to combat the underrepresentation of women* in tech.

We're going online

This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be holding cmd-f in a virtual format. Our event will be primarily held through Discord and Twitch, and we will be operating in the PST timezone.

With the wonderful nwPlus Bot (as well as the fabulous nwPlus team), activities like team formation, mentor help, sponsor booths, and workshop support will be easier than ever.

We hope to see you learn and grow with us this year! No matter where you are or what your experience is, the cmd-f community welcomes you with open arms.
