Three days, five cross-functional teams, unlimited desire to make a change.

General Assembly is pleased to invite you to an evening showcasing LA’s newest tech talent!

Curious what GA grads can do for your business or organization? Interested in seeing GA grads skills in action? Ready to hire a UX designer or software engineer?

On September 18th, over 40 of GA’s software engineers and UX designers will be showcasing their skills by presenting solutions to real world problems. We've asked our software engineers and UX designers to work together to create full-fledged applications centered around developing a new tool to support the Los Angeles Food Policy Council with their efforts to improve sustainability and equitable distribution. 

Come see what's possible in just three days as these teams present their apps in the culmination of this social impact hackathon.

At our presentation event, you can check out their apps, see their portfolios, and meet the graduates themselves before they jump into the job market while enjoying happy hour. If you’re looking for your next source of talent, or looking to build a pipeline, this is the place to meet LA’s newest pool of talent.
