Ideation/Info Evening

Wednesday 27th May

6pm - 9pm
7 Prospect St, Fortitude Valley Brisbane 

This is a combined ideation and info night, to help our new RHoK changemakers come up with ideas about how they might use technology to solve their challenges. We'll be introducing a few of the inspiring new changemakers for the upcoming Brisbane winter hackathon. Small teams will then get together with them to work things out in a really informal and casual environment. 

We'll also be explaining how the RHoK community needs a wide variety of skillsets - from coding to design, to BA work and marketing and social media. While it's a useful event for changemakers, it's also great for those joining us as experts as you can use your specialised skills for a really good cause. We will provide food, drink and all the stuff you need to make the ideas happen. 

If you're an established member of the community and want to re-connect, or a new person looking to find out what we are all about, this is the ideal night to join us. Come down and contribute your brainpower to getting some good ideas launched in the lead up to the winter hackathon in June. Please note that we will not be coding at this event!

Brisbane Winter Hackathon

Saturday 13th June
Sunday 14th June

9am - 5pm
7 Prospect St, Fortitude Valley Brisbane 

On the 13th and 14th June 2015, individuals and groups from around Australia will be joining in to hack for humanity. If you're in Brisbane it would be great to see you at the RHoK Brisbane event. 

We're looking for 'hackers' who are passionate about technology. They have varied skills and backgrounds including software developers, business analysts and graphic designers. Our hackers will be working with changemakers from the community who are working to solve a problem, and have a vision for how technology can help reach their goals. 

Our goal is to bring organisations that have a social impact together with skilled technologists who want to make a difference, in an environment ideal for collaboration and innovation.
