Hacking For Humanity on December 3rd & 4th

If you’re a software developer who enjoys giving back to the community, then here’s the perfect opportunity to put your technology skills to good use.

Join the community of do-gooder technologists just like you called Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK). They describe themselves as “a global community of innovators building practical open technology to make the world a better place.”

This community volunteers their time to help create solutions for a variety of problems from gender equality to disaster resiliency. Solutions developed by the RHoK community have been used by organizations such as the World Bank, governments, emergency responders, and citizens.

Random Hacks of Kindness hosts global hackathon events around the world to bring together a community of developers to build programs and applications, their description of a hackathon is: A simultaneous global hackathon which addresses issues of disaster and humanitarian response. Local subject matter experts are brought in to guide the developers in relevant issues and to further the use of developed tools after the event.

If you reside in Portland, OR (as we do) then consider yourself booked this weekend (December 2-4), because you’ll be hacking for humanity at the Portland hosted RHoK Hackathon. This evening join your fellow hackers for a reception to discuss ideas at Urban Airship’s offices. Then Saturday and Sunday let the hacking and problem solving begin!
