Event Details

Hack for Good

12-hour hackathon

June 22-23

6:00p-6:00a

 

Hack for Good is a community-focused event for developers.  This 12-hour hackathon will provide developers the opportunity to collaborate on a project of choice that will benefit the community.  Several project options will be provided (along with needed information) or developers can work on their personal projects.  Event cost is $15 to cover food and any amount left over will be donated to United Way.

 

Participants will be presented with project options that will benefit the community or can choose to work on personal projects!   After time to hear about the overall project goals, developers will form teams, come up with a game plan and start creating!  You can come as a team or come alone and meet new people.  At the end of 12 hours, each team will have 5-10 minutes to present what they have created and potentially have their project become implemented in the community.

 

Project Information:  
 
1) United Way - Create an app (either Apple or Android) to coordinate volunteers throughout the community.  The app will streamline information and volunteer efforts  in the event of a natural disaster or emergency. 
 
2) Startup CoMo - Create an interactive calendar for entrepreneurial and development meetings/news in the area.
 
3) City of Columbia - Create an app (either Apple or Android) where patrons can find the nearest bus stop and routes. The City is using grant money to improve the bus system in Columbia.  If a team or individual puts together a project the City likes, a larger relationship could be formed for future projects.
 
There will be mentors available to provide technical and user-friendliness advice throughout the night.  Come show off your skills or foster your abilities in a new field! Have your hand in a product that could be used throughout the community.
 
This event will only be as sucessful as the type of participants we have involved, so sign up and please spread the word!  And you will still have time to take a nap and head to the lake!
