We're excited to announce that since we scheduled Helping Hacks for August 24th-26th, we've had tremendous response: 20 hackers in the first three days - both indy and from top-tech companies in the city. We've also registered a dozen volunteers, half-a-dozen organizations with cool tech projects and some really great, supportive sponsors including The Blue Ridge Foundation, Applications for Good, The Sunlight Foundation, Singlebrook, and of course our venue sponsor, the Hatchery/AlleyNYC.
Of course, we're still looking for more people to join up to hack and more organizations to participate, so please spread the word and signup if you're interested.
To sign up as a hacker visit http://www.goodnik.org/helping-hacks/sign-up-for-helping-hacks/ and please make note of any particular skills. We'll be launching a companion site with Hacker League shortly to better organize hackers and projects.
If you're an organization (or you know of one that needs help) you can submit your project at http://www.goodnik.org/helping-hacks/submit-a-project/.
Sponsors, visit http://www.goodnik.org/helping-hacks/sponsor-helping-hacks/ or just drop a note to [address removed] for more details.
Thanks for all your continued support - this is going to be a fantastic event!
