What: Ubilabs and the Google Maps team invite you to put your developer and creative skills to use at our 24-hour hackathon. We’re coming together to develop innovative solutions to lend a hand in the Syrian Refugee Crisis. During this 24-hour hackathon, you will work with other developers to brainstorm how existing platforms like Crisis Info Hub, Refugee Maps and more can be expanded and improved and reach even more people impacted by the crisis.
You bring your ideas and hacking skills while we provide the development platforms, meals, snacks and (of course) caffeinated beverages to keep you going. To help inspire your creativity, you’ll hear from local NGOs on what they are doing to help the crisis, Google team members who have created platforms to help different global initiatives and map and geolocation technology experts.
When: Wednesday, November 18, beginning at 14:00 until Thursday, November 19 ending at 13:00.
Why: Millions of people around the world want to do what they can to help refugees and migrants affected by the crisis in Europe, the Middle East and Northern Africa. We’re providing the developer community with the opportunity to help out in a meaningful way. The improvements that you build can help improve Refugee lives.
Who: We invite developers, product managers and technical leads building web apps, Android, or iOS as well as students. The registration deadline is November 13, 2015. Space is limited, so sign-up today to reserve your seat.
