I wanted to share this Amnesty event that we're running
on Saturday in central London. I thought it may be of interest to some
on this list. Hope to see some of you there!
Have a nice day :)
Amnesty International & ThoughtWorks cordially invite
you to join us at the inaugural Panic Button Open Jam!
Panic Button is a mobile alert system which
enables human rights activists to trigger a rapid response from their network
in an emergency.
We're looking for Android Developers, Frontend
Developers, Devops folks, UX'ers, Content-people, Videographers, and Activists to
donate a day to enable Amnesty to begin the app's pilot with activists
in the field.
There will be lots happening across three different teams
on the day:
Breakfast will be served from 8.30am and we will be kicking-off
at 9am sharp. Lunch will be provided and drinks from 6pm.
