What we're about

The demand for skilled IT professionals in Kenya still by far meet what the local universities offer every graduation year. #CollegeHack is a project that will bring together college students in Universities in Western Kenya to a one day open hackathon on the last Saturday of every month. These series of hackathons to be hosted at LakeHub will be structured to promote teamwork, skills actualization/development and entrepreneurial thinking among the college students. It will be one day break from the traditional classrooms to work towards solving challenges in the society using information technology. On every hacking session, there will be at least three mentors covering programming, design and business aspects to offer support to the students. In this first #CollegeHack series we want to explore ways in which we can build cutting-edge solutions using available information technologies. These solutions should target (but not limited to) the following areas; Education Business AgriBusiness Health Security and Transport. Yes, you may want to build solutions in areas other than these mentioned here, and that’s perfectly fine. For those who would like to learn programming (any language!), please sign up for free on any of the following websites; Software Carpentry GitHub Codecademy
