Yo, technologists and non-technologists alike, Philadelphia is again participating in the global Random Hacks of Kindness hackathon.
RHOK is a weekend-long civic action project build event in which subject matter experts partner with technologists to create tools that make organizations better. Organized by technology news site TechnicallyPhilly.com and sponsored by Drexel University's Computer Science program, the event is hosted at Drexel's brand new ExCITe Center.
Come out to our opening reception in the new First Round Capital offices to brainstorm ideas, and then show up at 9am on Saturday, Dec. 1. 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.
