Event Details

Charities need help with their IT systems and they need YOU! In ONE weekend, you can make a difference by using your IT skills to solve a problem which would make charities' day to day operations more efficient.

Some of the potential activities you could be doing may include:

  • modernising a charity's website
  • optimising an existing IT system
  • adding new functionality to an website/application
  • creating a brand new website

The end result of these activities will make a huge difference to a charity.

So why take part?

This is an opportunity for you to:

  • use your skills for good cause and make a difference
  • network with like-minded people
  • test or try out new skills
  • get outside of your comfort zone

Just one weekend's worth of your time can be hugely beneficial to charities.

 

Agenda:

 

Friday

5:30pm-7.30pm: Charities pitch their IT project. Afterwards, volunteers will form teams by picking which project they wish to work on. These teams will work together with a representative of the charity over the weekend.

 

Saturday

9:00am: Teams start working to solve their chosen charities problems. Mentors will support the teams and help to provide guidance for a solution that could be implemented within the weekend.

12:00pm: Team updates followed by a networking lunch and exchange of ideas.

5:00pm: Nibbles and drinks to finish the day.

 

Sunday

9:00am: Start Day 2.

12:00pm: Further team updates followed by a networking lunch.

5:00pm: Presentation of the team projects.

5:40pm: End of the hackathon, nibbles and drinks to celebrate.

 

There will be an ample supply of coffee and tea available throughout the weekend.

Charity-IT

Charity-IT hackathons bring together IT volunteers to work on several charities' IT problems for the weekend.

For the charities, the free access to IT expertise even for just a weekend is hugely valuable. 

For the volunteers, it's a one-off of opportunity to use their skills for good, without the time commitments of a regular volunteer role.

We have worked on 15 IT projects to date and are looking forward to working on more in 2015.
