I started the "Hackers 4 Good" group to meet other people that want to use their professional skills to give back to their communities – and the world at large – by hacking real world problems, and creating and building solutions that can make a difference.
The hackathons format will be approximately this:
• A chosen non-profit organization will be invited to provide a problem that they'd like help with – where they think that design and technology can help.
• During the 2-4 four hours hackathons the teams will be able to put together a basic idea and prototype of their solution
• The winning team, and others interested might continue working on the project, IF they like the cause/project, other people might be able to join as well.
• IF we find sponsors, we'd love to see these solutions come to life and make a real difference.
All skills levels are welcome. Looking forward to meeting everyone!
Feel free to reach out or suggest charities or sponsors! :)
