A Few Words

About Us

Space For Creative Minds

Our Mission:

It can be difficult to find a community for hackathons and related competitions, especially if you aren’t surrounded by people who don’t share your passions and interests. Here at Developing Developers, our goal is to connect young womxn involved in competitive programming with our services.


What We Do:

Our forum allows womxn to contact each other and build connections within a community of high school and college problem solvers. We strive to maintain a healthy and friendly atmosphere where everyone feels safe and welcome to ask any question. Developing Developers’ forum places an emphasis on navigating through problems on competitive computing programs such as USACO, Hackerrank, Hackerearth, etc.

We also host contests (prizes provided for top scorers!) for people to practice their skills and provide a space for people to receive feedback on their work. Developing Developers will also host a mentorship program for individualized advice, feedback, and support so that experienced engineers can connect with aspiring and current competitive programmers.


If you would like to contribute to Developing Developers or compete in contests, please fill out the form(s) on our home page!
