Stanford Women in Computer Science's annual hackathon, HackOverflow, will take place on April 20th from 10am to 10pm - this year's theme is E^3: Ethics, Equality, and Empowerment. Through the event, we hope to encourage beginner programmers to participate in hackathons and to experience the practical applications of CS. But you don't need to be a woman or a beginner to participate! Anyone interested in programming, design, or just hackathons in general is welcome.

{W}E^3 are the Change!
