On the 25th and 26th November, individuals and groups from around Australia will be joining in to hack for humanity.
If you're in Sydney it would be great to see you at the RHoK Sydney event. We're looking for 'hackers' who are passionate about technology. They have varied skills and backgrounds including software developers, business analysts and UX designers, content writers, marketers, project managers, etc.
Our hackers will be working with changemakers from the community who are working to solve a problem, and have a vision for how technology can help reach their goals.
Our goal is to bring together skilled technologists who want to make a difference, and, organisations that have a social impact, in an environment ideal for collaboration and innovation.
For those interested in the causes we're supporting theres a little about them below.
