CodeDay is a nationwide event where student programmers, artists, musicians, actors, and everyone else can get together and build apps & games for 24 hours. Students of all skill levels are welcome — there will be workshops and mentors who can help if you're new!
At the beginning of CodeDay, everyone with an idea comes up and pitches it to the group. If you're on your own, or just without an idea, this is the time for you to build whatever you want.
No prior coding experience needed. Event open to high school and college students.
