Humanitarian Toolbox Hackathon at DevTeach

The Humanitarian Toolbox is hosting its next Hackathon at DevTeach in Toronto.

DevTeach2013-647x205-7

DevTeach is a fantastic community-led conference that is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. Many of my friends in the MVP and RD communities are speaking there. It’s a fantastic way to learn more about software development, and grow your skills.

This year, you can give back as well.

You can spend one evening (May 30th) using your skills to build software that makes relief workers more efficient when disaster strikes. Attend the Humanitarian Toolbox hackathon at DevTeach. Help build the next generation of life-saving tools to meet the needs of relief workers. Your skills can save lives.

We held our first hackathon at DevIntersections in April.  (You can read about the experience on my previous blog entries). We’re hoping to build on that momentum during a number of conferences this summer. DevTeach is our first chance to grow more. Richard Campbell (yes, that Richard Campbell) will be hosting this hackathon.  If you are going to DevTeach, please join us.

scheduling note: Due to family events (happy ones), I can’t make this conference. I’ll be at other upcoming events later this summer and fall.
