Calling all developers, geeks, designers, and hackers!
RHoK is an event and competition combining technology with disaster relief, social development, climate change, and human rights to create immediately applicable solutions to real world problems. Drawing on the talents and initiative of the brightest hackers and problem-solvers from around the world, here’s a chance to volunteer your time and hack for humanity.
Show up at 9am on Saturday, June 4th with a team of 2-4 hackers (or just show up and join a team there!). Pick one of the dozens of available social impact problem definitions - or come up with your own - and see what you can make by Sunday afternoon. The best projects will be featured across the globe.
This event is FREE and open to the public. We will provide food, Internet, power, and logistics. Just bring your laptop!
