Indigitous #HACK, returning October represents a generation of Christians in the tech industry passionate about bringing the gospel to where it’s not. Each city will gather locally over a weekend in October, while simultaneously connecting to a global network of Christians from around the world who are also applying their talents to their faith!
Here are some of our projects and campaigns with our community.
Hackathons provide a hands-on event for self-expression and creativity for computer programmers, developers, engineers, user experience, project managers and others through technology. People with technical backgrounds come together, form teams around a problem or idea, and collaboratively code a unique solution from scratch — these generally take shape in the form of websites, mobile apps, and robots.
Indigitous #HACK uniquely gathers devoted Christ-followers with a desire to extend God’s purposes in our local cities and connects us around the world. #HACK offers Christians in each host city an opportunity to make new friends and learn from one another while addressing critical issues through digital solutions. #HACK invites people to meet the needs of the church, missions and society on a local and global scale, expanding the Great Commission through new innovative platforms and digital strategies.
Mass collaboration is the ability for large numbers of people, who may have no previous connection, to effectively and creatively work towards a common goal. The greater diversity of skill represented on each team, the higher the team’s capacity to successfully tackle the task at hand. #HACK levels mass collaboration up to a global scale, connecting like-minded believers across every region of the world through expertise and prayer.
To get right to the point… yes! #HACK welcomes anyone who wants to collaborate together on missional technology projects for long-term impact. While our work focuses on multiple technology platforms, 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 skill is the ability to work as a team and find ways to problem-solve. Also, while Indigitous #HACK is explicitly Christian, participants from any (or no) faith background are welcomed warmly.
It depends on the city in which you are participating. Please fill out the #HACK 2020 interest form, and we will gladly connect you to the closest #HACK city.
Our local mentors will be by your side throughout the hackathon online or face-to-face.
