Just before DrupalCon Austin, you can join Austin changemakers and techies for a weekend of high-energy hacking, snacking and good will at the Austin Hack for Change.
This second annual event is a unique approach to a hackathon. Instead of just getting together to work on creative ideas, a number of local nonprofit are bringing their problems and people to the table. Each nonprofit has identified project ideas and Project Owners to serve as experts for the weekend. Hackers can sign up, show up, find the project that inspires them the most, and join a team to help make the world a little better place.
Bring your laptop, creativity, and enthusiasm for design to ATX Hack for Change and enjoy delicious eats and tasty, caffeinated (and/or alcoholic) drinks over a fast-paced weekend designing for change.
About The Event
ATX Hack for Change is the annual civic and social good hackathon hosted by St. Edward's University in conjunction with the National Day of Civic Hacking. This year's event is co-presented by St. Edward's University, South by Southwest, and Open Austin. By providing a space for non-profits and other community organizations to directly access the skills and expertise of Austin's most noble technologists, we hope to facilitate the creation of tools and solutions that have long-term impact for the good of the city as a whole.
Date: Saturday May 31 - June 1
Time: Saturday: 9am-12am, Sunday: 9am-6pm
Location: St. Edward's University
3001 S. Congress Ave.
If you can't make it to the full Hackathon, you are welcome to join us for the social time at Thirteen23 (506 Congress Ave #200, Austin, TX 78701) on Friday, May 30 from 7:00pm-10:00pm.
