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!

 

We’re excited that RHoK Toronto partnered with Commons11 to host a design jam on November 24th at BentoMiso to hone down the challenges that will be working on during the hackathon. To register go to http://www.rhoktorontodesignjam.eventbrite.com
