#HACK is a collaboration between technologists, designers, students, ministry leaders and leaders harnesses the power of a generation of purpose-driven and faith-inspired technologists who are looking for opportunities to serve others through technology. We convened people from all backgrounds who wanted to collectively make a difference, to live a life of purpose, and to use our skills, gifts, and expertise with technology to impact our world.
You’ll help meet missional needs and make Jesus known globally through technology and digital strategies.
You’ll help meet missional needs and make Jesus known globally through technology and digital strategies. You will share your gifts and perspectives, making new solutions possible that can’t be seen on a smaller scale. Your code can change people’s lives.
A hackathon is an event in which computer programmers, developers and technologists join others in the field of software development, like graphic designers, interface designers, project managers to collaborate intensively on projects.
What separates Indigitous #HACK from others is that our participants are focused on mobilizing technologists to support God’s work across the nations, offering communities a chance to learn from and with one another as they address interconnected and related challenges. We are focused on inviting people to meet the missional gap, seeing the Great Commission fulfilled through technology and digital strategies.
Historically, hackathons have been exceptional opportunities for hands-on, creative problem solving of difficult technological challenges. Global hackathons, or “mass collaborations”, take this opportunity to another dimension, by connecting an international community around a common vision to meet common needs in their communities.
To get right to the point… yes! #HACK welcomes anyone who wants to collaborate together on missional technology projects that have long-term impact. While our work focuses on all kinds of technology, you don’t have to be a programmer to get involved. We need designers, photographers, writers, project managers, social media gurus – creative thinkers of all types! The most important skillsets are the abilities to work with others and find ways to solve problems. Also, while Indigitous #HACK is explicitly Christian, participants from any (or no) faith background are openly welcomed.
It depends on the city your are participating.
