Event Details

Wanna Save the World?
Random Hacks of Kindness is all about "hacking for humanity"

Here's how: Attend the Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) hackathon and build technology that saves lives, alleviates suffering, and speeds recovery after disasters strike. These hackathons are also competitive codejams.  Winning hacks are selected by a panel at the end of the event, and the winning teams are recognized on the RHoK website, and claim the right to call themselves "RHoKstars" for ever after.   

From June 5-6, 2010, RHoK is hosting its second hackathon—a global gathering of hackers in Washington D.C., Sydney, Nairobi, Jakarta, Sao Paolo and London, coming together in real time for a weekend of coding around problems relating to natural disaster risk and response. This global hackathon will take place at the conclusion of the World Bank’s “Understanding Risk” conference, a gathering of hundreds of experts from around the world who will be discussing some of the very challenges we hackers are seeking to provide solutions for.  

Get involved! 

RHoK is looking for enthusiastic hackers, programmers, students and anyone interested in technology that makes a difference in the world in Sydney to support this inaugural global hackathon by taking part in this incredible opportunity to “hack for humanity.”

Food, drinks and plenty of RHoK swag will be provided! Join us and spend a weekend meeting new people, networking and hacking to making a difference in the world!

Please bring your own RJ-45 / cat-5 / network patch cords. We will be charged for any that we use from UNSW.

Also bring:

  • Your laptop
  • Power cords
  • Duct Tape (for the cords to prevent tripping)
  • Power Bars
  • Ideas
  • Positive Energy

RHoK is generously sponsored by a partnership between Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft, NASA and the World Bank.
