Event description
Join other students who are passionate about technology for a hackathon. You'll help local non-profits, gain skills and make new friends!

About this event

Do you want to grow your technical skills while also helping non-profits in central Iowa? Join us at the Devs Do Good hackathon.

No matter your skill level, you're welcome at Devs Do Good. Our mission is to connect students who have a passion for technology with local non-profits needing technical support.

What is a hackathon?

A hackathon is an event where computer programmers of all skills levels and backgrounds work collaboratively on a software project.

How will the Devs Do Good hackathon work?

The hackathon will start with four non-profits sharing how Devs Do Good can help them with their technical needs. Maybe they need a new website, changes to an existing site or a manual process automated. You'll listen to their pitch and select which project you're most passionate about. Then you along with a small group of students and a technical mentor will spend the next 8 hours working on the project. At the end of the day your team will share what you created and celebrate your success! And the best part is the non-profit can get back to their mission of helping our community and they'll have brand new tech to show off.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided during the hackathon. And if you need a break during the day, we'll have shuffleboard, ping pong, foosball and a putting matt.

Register by October 8th to guarantee t-shirt size.

Note: Devs Do Good is a 501(c)3 and volunteers may receive Silver Cord hours for their time.
