Are you a programmer, designer, UX practitioner or web producer with a streak of do-goodery? Want to help an awesome group of non-profits including The Love Comes, Hackathon for Social Good and Day On? Join us for our TechFest NW Hackathon for Social Good held at OMSI’s auditorium.
Bet for Good: A website for The Love Comes (Barcelona, Spain) that will be used to raise money to address hunger, homelessness and economic disparity. Users wager credits/points on sporting events (national or local) and use the points that they win to get prizes. Credits/points are purchased by users and the revenues help purchase goods and services to help local nonprofits such as food banks, housing groups and economic development (micro loans, etc.)
Platform for Good: A website for the Hackathons for Social Good that allows individuals and teams to contribute to social good projects. The site is a repository for project plans, code, documents and contributor information. Github has agreed to help with the code repository component.
Day On: An all-volunteer, zero-cash-flow collaboration, Day On connects nonprofit organizations that need advice and assistance with volunteers who are ready to help.
Sun., Sept. 8th from 11:00am-6:30pm
