Have tech ideas, but not sure about code? ProtoHack, the 100% code-free hackathon, is at Bitmaker on March 12th! We’re pumped to offer a non-technical angle on product creation, as well as a great opportunity to connect with fellow innovators from a range of fields.
ProtoHack provides non-coders the space to try out prototyping, equipped with popular UX tools and a supportive community. You’ll start the day with an idea. With the support of mentors, you’ll build out a prototype and 90-second pitch that you’ll deliver to a panel of investors, developers, product people, and more. You could win awesome prizes to take your product to the next level, all without writing a single line of code.
ProtoHack participants can fly solo, or take advantage of the room full of creative thinkers and gather a team together.

Around the weekend
On the day of the event, we’ll be kicking off with an amazing keynote speaker Verne Ho, Director of Design at Shopify. Prior to its acquisition, Verne was a co-founder of the widely-respected agency Jet Cooper. He’ll share his perspective on balancing design and business considerations in user-centred design.
Before the day of design hacking, we’ll be hosting a panel + social on the evening of March 11th to discuss Toronto’s UX scene – including advice on how to break into a design career.
Want to get familiar with some tools before ProtoHack? We’ve got an Intro to UX Design workshop next week! Join Dieter on March 2nd in a walkthrough of creating a prototype using Invision. After introducing a UI design example, we’ll turn static images into a clickable prototype.
