The theme for this year is Always Together, Never Apart. Although are all physically far apart due to the pandemic, we want to show that TechTogether Seattle provides a chance to bring people closer together. Our event aims to show unity, support, and teamwork. We want to uplift and encourage other women and non-binary individuals to get involved in tech even though we might be miles apart. Despite not being together physically, we can still work together to uplift each other and work towards improving our skills and involvement in tech.

Not to worry! We will have plenty of team-building workshops and mentors to help you brainstorm and bring your idea to life.

While you have the option to work alone, TechTogether is a team event, so we encourage everyone to work in teams! Don't worry if you don't have a team—you'll have plenty of opportunities to find one virtually! TechTogether will be hosting a variety of team formation activities throughout the first day, and we will also have a Discord channel dedicated to team formation leading up to and during the event.
