CALLING EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO BE PART OF MAKING A CHANGE FOR THE BETTER!!
 
We are going to be running a  48 hour  hackathon over the weekend 16th,  17th  and 18th September. Although this hackathon was designed in order to come up with a solution for the “Code for Taxicabs Mobility Challenge”, i.e. to improve the taxi-sharing experience for drivers and riders in Morocco, we have decided to also tackle local transportation issues.
 
There will be coffee on tap supplied by Black Insomnia and juice from Juicebox, as well as prizes and some food supplied by other sponsors including Where is My Transport.
 
Our aims for this hackathon:
  • For you to meet likeminded people
  • Learn new skills
  • Use your skills to develop something that will help improve the world
  • Solve a problem
  • Improve the structure for future hackathons
 
Problems we are tackling:Everyone is welcome!
Even if you have never built an app we will introduce you to AppShed so it will be fun and super easy!
