Calling all hackers, coders, programmers, developers, designers, thing tanks, brain stormers of all shapes and sizes! Spend a weekend with us and change the world!
The 2nd RHoK Hackathon Belgium event happens on 2-3 June 2012, in Kontich, near Antwerp, Gent and Brussels.
The mission of the global RHoK movement is to make the world a better place through a global community of innovation developing practical open technology. Hacking for Humanity, so to speak. RHoK is unique in the space of “apps competitions”, “hackathons” and “technology for social good”. RHoK’s model is to start from identifying, defining and refining problem definitions provided by subject matter experts and local stakeholders. This ensures that volunteer time is focused on solving real problems for real people.
This will be the 5th event in general, happening at the same time in 35 cities around the world, live streamed and … great fun!
The event is free. Food and net access will be provided. Great fun is promised, prices for the best applications are foreseen and sleeping is possible on place. Everything the hacker’s heart requires is prepared – missing part: YOU!
We would like to introduce the Hackathon with some shorts talk sessions and maybe one of you would like to join us for a discussion panel or a talk?
We are also looking for “local problem definitions”, so if you have some inspiration what could be done, please let us know.
