Event Details

Come hack for urban disaster preparedness!

Geeks Without Bounds is hosting Dublin Hacks as a way for technologists and coders to contribute to the wellbeing of their city during a disaster scenario - and help response efforts go as smoothly as possible. Urban disaster preparedness seeks to create technologies that help empower people in the face of uncertain circumstances to be the architects of their own rescue.

So what are we doing?

Curated challenges for urban disaster preparedness will be presented by local humanitarian and disaster groups, and participants will form teams around those challenges. You are also heartily encouraged to pitch your own related idea at the event and submit your project at the final judging. Teams will have all day Saturday to work on their projects before final submissions are due at 18:30.

Safe Space.

Coders of all genders and presentations are welcome, and we provide a safe space to learn, make mistakes, and try again. We encourage techies of all skill sets and experience levels to attend, from the brand new coder to the veteran C+er. We set the expectation of mutual respect for everyone at the event, and work to make sure participants feel welcome.
