Open Hours featuring SwayWhat

We'll open with a sneak preview of an upcoming TEDx talk by Noah Blumenthal, CEO & Founder of SwayWhat.

SwayWhat believes that more facts leads to smarter people leads to a better world. Our greatest hope is to increase the use of facts to improve the way people understand the world around them and sway one another's opinions.

After Noah's talk, we'll have our traditional open hours. 

Developers for Good open hours is a way for

• Non-profit and social mission organizations to access technical expertise

• Developers to share knowledge and make an impact

• Aspiring developers to learn about real projects

    Hi. Looking forward to stopping by tonight. Would love to talk to anyone interested in working on a prototype.

      Hey Matt - we require everyone share the social problem they're working to address, and the name of the organization (doesn't have to be final). Please expand on your idea beyond "mobile app" so we can help connect you with developers interested in the same causes.

      Hi Vanessa - I know this is very delayed, but maybe you all will see it, and I will be at future Developers for Good meetings, as well. We are trying to address inefficiencies in the way people move around their daily lives. Besides that, I'd love to elaborate more offline. Let me know if you know of anyone interested in such an idea. All the best.

    2.The keynote speech will not play fully for me, it stops after a few seconds but perhaps that is a net issue.
