Milwaukee Web Professionals Message Board › Hackathon this weekend @ Bucketworks!
This weekend the Random Hacks of Kindness global hackathon will be taking place at Bucketworks (as well as in 34 other cities around the globe!).
This event aims to bring together experts on real world social problems with hackers, designers, programmers, scientists and world-saving enthusiasts to build technology which solves these problems. The main focus will be on water and disaster management issues, but anything that helps make the world a better place is fair game!
The festivities kickoff with a pre-party at Open MiKE (in the Grand Ave Mall) on Friday at 5:30pm, which will feature beer from Big Bay Brewing Company and a tasting from the Great Lakes Distillery.
Lunch, team building and the problem presentations will begin on Saturday at 12:30pm. Hacking will commence at 2pm on Saturday and finish at 2pm on Sunday, 24 hours later. You are free to come and go as you please, there is no requirement to hack for 24 hours straight, but the space will be available to you if you choose to use it.
Meals will be provided through out! Prizes will be awarded to teams for best water solution, best disaster solution, best design and a sponsored challenge from WaterTech USA.
