Hackathon project brainstorming!

Join Technically PhillyONA Philly, and Hacks Hackers for a night of brainstorming and beer! We're coming together to hash out project ideas for the Random Hacks of Kindness hackathon. This event is cross-listed here: http://www.meetup.com/Technically-Philly/events/90113752/.

A hackathon is a weekend creative competition in which smart people (technologists and non-technologists) come up with small technology solutions (hacks) that can be built in a short period of time together.

The fourth local installment of the global Random Hacks of Kindness (RHOK) hackathon will take place at Drexel University the weekend of Dec. 1 and 2, 2012. (see coverage of past RHOK projects here ph.ly/randomhacks)

The Friday night BEFORE, we call out subject matter experts, nonprofit leaders, civic and community representatives, journalists and, yes, technologists to come by, grab a beer, meet other like-minded Philadelphians interested in how to make our city better through technology and pitch ideas for building tools over the weekend.

We also want you to come to the actual hackathon and help guide the development of projects. (RSVP for the actual hackathon here)

We'll be throwing down at the very cool new First Round Capital headquarters in University City. RHOK is sponsored by Drexel University and Technically Philly.

For our reception, local GIS powerhouse Azavea and Technically Philly will provide some tasty local beer.

    Sadly I could not escape my weekend commitments and attend any of this RHOK Hackaton. The brainstorming session was great and I'm looking forward to checking out what happened on the RHOK site.

    I really wish I could've attended. I really REALLY wanted to pitch my project! But a severe illness is preventing me from joining. I wish you all the best!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
