Create technology that matters.
Join us for a hackathon in Dallas/Fort Worth where you will spend the weekend creating technology that matters with like-minded people. The weekend hackathon will be an environment of collaboration and inspiration as we focus on the passion, purpose, and creativity of our entrepreneurial community in supporting the good work of transforming lives.
Developers, designers, entrepreneurs, creative individuals from all disciplines, investors, non-profits, and churches, will design and build new applications to tackle from a Christian perspective the challenges confronting our society, our communities, and our lives.
Here are the CHALLENGES
How can technology activate every local church to take an intentional and active role in combating human trafficking?
Can you create technology to help every church challenge its members to be donor organs, saving tens of thousands of lives every year and greatly reducing the organ donation crisis?
How can you increase scripture engagement, now?
How can technology connect people searching for God online regardless of what OTT messaging service they use?
How can games impart the need and benefits of being generous to the mobile first generation of children?
How do you translate the Bible into a language that has no written word?
What if technology could help activate the neighborhood, the community, and the Church to help bring affordable, healthy and nutritious food options to urban areas lacking them? What if you could create the AirBnB for food deserts?
Please remember that more challenges might be presented on the first day of the Hackathon. If you would like to discuss with potential team members, or the champions of these challenges, make sure to use the Code for The Kingdom Google+ Community.
In case you are already interested or working on a project, don’t change course. Feel free to post suggested projects at the Project Ideas section of the community, but keep in mind your projects must be aligned with the Transforming Lives theme of this hackathon
We're looking for creations to teach and enable, in children and adults, greater spiritual justice; teach and increase holistic generosity; ask why our Churches still lack effective ways to bring people together and inspire future leaders - and change that. Build technologies to help rescue victims of human trafficking, help provide for the homeless, alleviate global hunger, or bring hope to the fatherless. Create new apps to help bring spiritual well-being to children and adults. And much more.
Marketplace and ministry leaders, angel investors, and hi-tech accelerators and incubators will be at the event to meet and mentor you. Build relationships that might go beyond the weekend, to help you continue working on your projects and build partnerships to bring your ideas to implementation.
The venue will remain open non-stop during the entire hackathon. Participants are encouraged to utilize the facility and take advantage of the meals and healthy hacker activities day and night if desired.
Come join us!
