ReAllocate Hacktivation - Hack for good
Date/Time: August 3rd 10:00 AM - August 3rd 9:00 PM
Location: The Embassy - 399 Webster St, San Francisco
Join us on August 3rd for the next ReAllocate Hacktivation. We are welcoming new partners, new teams of developers, designers and entrepreneurs and growing the community of people who want to use their skills to help social good projects thrive!
If you have not participated in a Hacktivation yet here is what you can expect! You will be meeting at a beatiful victorian mansion called the Embassy to join more than 60 developers, designers and storytellers to come together and hack for good on software projects that are creating social good through their work. After the project leaders explain their causes and where they could use help, you self select the cause that speaks to you and spread out with your team somewhere inside the house. As you start digging into the projects, our chefs will be working away in the kitchen to provide you with food throughout the day and keep your thirst quenched with tasty beverages.
We will also be running a workshop on open source project management to help provide strategies and best practices for the project leaders and anyone who is interested in starting or contributing to and open source project in the future.
We have an amazing community of people here in San Francisco that are working on projects to make the world a better place. We have a vision to help drive social innovation by connecting projects for the greater good with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to keep moving forward.
This month we are partnering with an all new set of projects and welcoming new participants and organizations to the network. We are gathering more ideas now and will have a confimed listing of projects shortly, presented through a new website for the Hacktivations.
