Indigitous #HACK returns this October
Indigitous #HACK, the global missional hackathon, is returning this October for a fourth year. Unlike previous years, this year #HACK will be split into two weekends, with some cities participating on Weekend A and others participating on Weekend B.
#HACK Weekend A: October 4-6, 2019
#HACK Weekend B: October 11-13, 2019
Indigitous #HACK is a collaboration between technologists, designers, students, and ministry leaders that harnesses the power of a generation of purpose-driven and faith-inspired technologists who are looking for opportunities to serve others through technology. Over the last three years, Indigitous #HACK has convened more than 2,000 participants in 60 cities across the world to work on 125 missional projects.
Bring #HACK to your city
Do you want to bring Indigitous #HACK to your city? We are looking for city leads who can host the event in your area. Don’t worry; we will help you through the process.
All hosts will be provided an event planning kit, will receive an invitation to join the Slack channel to communicate with other city leads across the world, will be invited to monthly planning meetings, and will be able to collaborate with other locations during the event. Let us know if you would like to host Indigitous #HACK.
What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is an event in which technologists and creatives join together to collaborate intensively on projects. Hacking is creating a quick, creative solution to a problem and our hackers work together to solve some of the problems that God has put on their hearts.
During previous Indigitous #HACK events, participants have worked on projects such as a website to reduce suicides, a program to disrupt human trafficking, a secure messaging platform for missionaries in secure countries, and more. If you want to see what God can do through the technologists, missions workers, and creative people in your city, apply to be a host.
