Our 2016 Hackathon was a great success! Here’s what it was all about:
The Civic Hackathon is our cornerstone event. It is what we started off to do and it continues to be central to our mission as an organization. We are focused on leveraging volunteers from the very talented technologist community we have here in Roanoke to benefit area nonprofits, governments and civic organizations. Our volunteer participants also wind up having a great time tackling difficult technical opportunities in a dynamic and fun environment.
Additionally, we will have an afternoon of seminars on how to use technology effectively for nonprofits and a surprise educational opportunity for kids.
A 24-hour marathon of programming and fun
Because we have great technical talent here and we have many organizations that could benefit from a little technical help.
Anyone that cares about technology and our community should come out. We are actively looking for both interesting projects from area organizations and talented volunteers.
