Charity Hack 2012
Charity Hack Weekend brings together charities and developers to revolutionize the collection of donations. Join us first weekend of November 3rd-4th for this years Charity Hack 2012 and be part of this extraordinary event. We’re looking for developers to come up with new and innovative ways of helping charities promote their causes and garner support. At the end of the weekend, great prizes will be awarded for the best application in different categories. We will update this blog with more information on prizes as November closes in.
How to participate?
Charity Hack event is free to attend for all. We encourage developers, designes and techies from charities to become part of it. You wont be dissapointed as we have great supply of food, drinks (beer included) and fun. Hack is hosted at PayPal HQ, Richmond Upon Thames, London. Registration for 2012 weekend is now open. Register!
We will post more detailed agenda closer to the event date but from previous hacks here is how it usually goes: starting in Saturday morning we let charities pitch current technology needs they have. Developers then select biggest challenges they want to go after and all fun begins. Teams work through 24 hours and deliver results Sunday afternoon. And winning teams get great prizes for their hard work.
Some charities send us their ideas beforehand and you can see them on this page. We also encurage you to submit ideas for Charity Hack 2012 and they will be added to the list. On the day of the event you can choose to hack on the idea from the list or any other idea you have. Thats up to you!
