10 Impactful Tech Projects Over 10 Years of Philly Codefest

Since 2013, Drexel University’s software and hardware hackathon, Philly Codefest, has inspired a number of imaginative tech projects aimed at improving the way we live and work in the City of Philadelphia, and beyond.

Philly Codefest 2023, presented by Comcast and held on March 11 and 12, will encourage attendees to create real-world, scalable software and hardware solutions to improve and expand artificial intelligence’s positive societal impacts. Hosted at 3675 Market St. in Philadelphia, the free event will feature keynote speakers, sponsor booths, networking opportunities with Comcast representatives, and a science fair-style presentation of competing projects, where teams will demo their creations to a panel of judges. This panel will include Drexel faculty, sponsors and members of the Philadelphia tech community.

Philly Codefest is one of a few hackathons hosted by a university that allows both students and professionals from all experience levels and backgrounds to work together to develop innovative tech solutions to help solve real-world challenges.
