The Bloomington IXDA is proud to partner with ServeIT of Indiana University SoIC for it's first "Design for Good" full-day hackathon! This will be a six hour design/development volunteer event, where we will create teams of people to help create a web presence for a local non-profit organization: the Non-Profit Alliance for Monroe County! To give you an idea of the current state of affairs, check out their site.
During the hackathon, we will invite organizers and leaders of the NPA in to speak and tell us more about their organization. Treat this as a real stakeholder meeting! You'll get crucial insights and information to bring their website to life. We'll also have additional guest speakers that will provide some motivation to complete the challenge.
Lunch will be provided, and the event will conclude with a celebration/post-mortem at Yogi's down the street on 10th. We hope this will be a fun, exciting and motivational day for all who attend and participate.
To sweeten the pot, we'll be raffling off two books courtesy of Morgan Kaufmann Publishers, who I'd like to announce as a permanent sponsor to our group. All participants will receive a discount code for use on their store website.
ServeIT partners connects non-profit companies to IU students and community members in order to provide best in-class service to organizations that need it most. For more information on this great organization, check out their website.
For now, please RSVP to this event. Please also note if you are interested in development or design of the site, as this is how we will create teams. If you have any questions or concerns or suggestions for how to make this event a success, please let us know!
