Hacking for Humanity
Throughout the weekend, we will be coding around problems related to natural disaster risk and climate change. RHoK has been working with subject matter experts around the world to develop problem statements addressing global disaster risk and climate change challenges. These problem statements will be the hacking challenges thrown out to the developers at the RHoK hackathon. See those statements as they develop at www.rhok.org.
At the end of the weekend, we'll invite you to share your RHoK application with the group with the potential to win prizes and see your work put to use on the ground to save lives and alleviate suffering.
Date: June 4th and 5th, 2011
Location: *iHub_ Nairobi (map)
