The RHoK #3 hackathon event will take place on June 4th and 5th at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.
Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) is a unique collaboration between Google, Microsoft, Yahoo!, NASA and the World Bank dedicated to using technology to make the world a better place by building a volunteer community of innovation.
RHoK collaborates with subject matter experts in disaster risk to develop and define problems, which form the framework of a RHoK hackathon—a marathon weekend event of competitive coding, gathering software engineers together to develop software to respond to global challenges and crises. A RHoK event brings together the best and brightest developers from around the world, who volunteer their time to solve real world problems.
RHoK hackers and events have been encouraged in their efforts by U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon and “Father of Internet” Vint Cerf, and have received widespread international media coverage, including an in-depth story by NPR and a post on the White House blog.
