RHoK is a community of innovators building practical open technology to make the world a better place.  Come be a part of the Bay Area community and participate in one of the most exciting hackathons in the world!

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is a gathering of technically skilled individuals focusing on collaborative efforts to address a challenge, issue, or goal. They usually run from several hours to weeks, and can include rigid structure or organic emergence.

What makes RHoK special?

Random Hacks of Kindness is a simultaneous global hackathon which addresses issues of disaster and humanitarian response. Local subject matter experts are brought in to guide the developers in relevant issues and to further the use of developed tools after the event.

What makes GWOB’s RHoK even specialer?

Geeks Without Bounds brings a year’s worth of experience in facilitating unconferences and hackathons to these events, as well as heavy involvement in the Volunteer Technology Community (VTC). We set expectations and limitations in regards to what responders will be able to learn on short notice under stress and what networks and power situations are like.

Both the reception and hackathon will take place at Voxeo Labs @ NextSpace 1 Hallidie Plaza, 2nd Floor in the Union Square District of downtown San Francisco.
