Toronto is Hacking for Social Good on December 1st and 2nd, 2012. Join us for a weekend long code-a-thon and compete for the best prize for a completed hack! Technologists, Designers, Subject Matter Experts, Concerned Citizens, Data Enthusiats and Developers will join together for a weekend of problem solving, idea hacking and innovation. By putting creativity to these scenarios, code-sprints create technological solutions to a range of challenges. Projects that we have worked on in the past include a micro-collaboration tool for journalists worldwide, a data visualization tool for housing in at-risk areas in Toronto, a project to raise awareness for drinking water advisories in First Nations communities in Canada, an ultrasound imaging tool to reduce maternal mortality rates in Nepal, a community platform to engage students and teachers in classrooms around the world, and more!
All in the name of social change, Random Hacks of Kindness has evolved into a community of people around the world committed to making change through collaboration. Register below!
