Since 2017, #codeathon is a beginner-friendly, learning-intensive hackathon that gathers young tech talents to build prototypes for thematic areas of interest.
#codeathon was first started as a YSEALI Seeds for the Future project supported by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S.-ASEAN Business Council and was introduced when we realise that there are still a lot of people who feel intimidated by hackathons, and that there is a lack of safe space in which people can experiment and learn with others.
Through #codeathon, young people raise their awareness about critical social issues and are encouraged to prototype solutions with the help of learning resources, mentors and a global community. #codeathon has reached 600+ youths mostly from the ASEAN region. You can find out more about past and upcoming runs below. If you are interested to support #codeathon in anyway, get in touch with us!
