Create Web and Mobile Applications for Awesome Non-Profits

Upcoming Events

Join web and mobile experts in an all-day Hackathon for Social Good, where programmers and designers work collaboratively to build programs and applications for awesome non-profit organizations.

Each hackathon begins with short presentations by educators and non-profit representatives, then participants break up into teams to plan, design and build a website or application in less than eight hours. Unnerving, challenging and fast-paced? You bet. A mad adrenaline rush? Of course. And it’s always for a great cause.
