Upcoming Event

#HACK 2020

Indigitous #HACK is an innovative and unique opportunity to get involved in the intersection of technology, faith and the common good. Join this exciting event to collaborate on solutions for large-scale issues facing our present world. Come unleash your potential whether you’re a technologist or creative in a growing community who is passionate about using God-given talents for good on a global scale.

If you’re a developer, marketer, engineer, technologist, film maker, entrepreneur, designer, strategist or passionate about having an impact through technology, come join us!

Mass collaborations like #HACK are an opportunity for you to contribute your skills directly to real needs and build relationships that allow us to understand, connect and sustain the kind of innovation our world so desperately needs. This collaboration will be richer because YOU are bringing your talent to it, and we believe that you will be enriched by the relationships and impact opportunities that #HACK will provide.

If you’re unfamiliar Discord, this video(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rILeDVyeGO4) should be able to help you understand it better.

Slack server info

If you’re not part of the slack channel for Melbourne you should jump in there, introduce yourself and start chatting with others. You can join the slack channel through kingdombuilders.io/slack and then join the #hack-in-melbourne channel. This is also how we will stay connected with most of the world during and beyond #Hack.

What are the challenges this year?

  • We have some ideas at the moment but if you have any let us know!

What is the (rough) schedule for the weekend?

    Event start 7pm – 12 AM (we’ll see how we’re going)
  • Saturday Oct. 10th: 8 AM – 12 AM (we’ll see how we’re going)

What should I bring?

Well we are unlikely to be gathering together physically this year so use whatever you have available to you! You should bring your own equipment: laptops, smartphones, camera, editing equipment, spare monitors, raspberry pis, arduinos, etc. Anything that could help you contribute to a project.

Previous/existing Projects

Indigitous people make big things. With big projects, no one person can do it all. There is a huge list of projects that are currently being worked on and this is just a sample of them looking for the help of specialists.

Not everything can be done during a #Hack weekend nor can everyone spend a full weekend hacking so people work on these projects bits at time whenever. If you are here with specialist skills, search for a project to join and collaborate on, and join the hub to meet other people that share your heart.
