do_action Charity Hackathon
do_action_phc is going to be an annual event where our local WordPress Port Harcourt Community comes together to give back to the broader community of Port Harcourt and Nigeria by building websites for multiple non-profit organizations. All of the sites are built for free by volunteers in one day. WHO CAN PARTICIPATE? Each such website will be built by a team of 6-8 people in the following roles: -- Project Managers: The Project Manager oversees the creation of the new website. Assigning tasks to team members, and keeping tabs on the team’s progress are all required tasks of the Project Manager. The Project Manager will also be put in touch with the NGOs before the event in order to make preliminary plans and to get a better idea of the project requirements. -- Designers: The Designer is responsible for the overall look and feel of the new website. This involves selecting the theme that will be used, as well writing any custom CSS that may be required. In some cases this will also involve the design of a new logo or other assets. -- Content Manager: The Content Manager is responsible for writing new content for the new website, as well as integrating existing content into the new design. -- Social Media Managers: The Social Media Manager is responsible for setting up any required social media accounts and assisting with getting content flowing on them. The role also includes training the non-profit organization on how to use their social media accounts and how best to integrate them with their new website. -- Developer: The Developer role is responsible for building the actual website. This includes implementing the chosen theme, finding and setting up required plugins, and possibly writing custom code to meet the requirements of the non-profit organization. -- Quality Assurance Tester: The Quality Assurance Tester is responsible for making sure that the website meets all the visual and accessibility requirements that the non-profit organization needs. Of equal importance is making sure that the new website works correctly – ensuring that all interactive elements function as they should, there are no broken links, and anything else that is required for the website to look and act in the way that the organization expects.
