Hackers are the lifeblood of RHoK. Without our RHoK stars nothing would get done.
We value meaningful collaboration with organisations and volunteer hackers. Rather than providing software development as a service, we prefer to take our hackers & changemakers on a journey – from understanding business problems and technology barriers, to brainstorming with hackers, to co-developing solutions.
After the hackathon we encourage hackers to keep RHoLL–ing with their teams. While a lot can be achieved in a 48 hour hackathon, most changemakers have multiple problems that need solving. At RHoK Australia we believe in solutions that can make a significant impact and sustainable in the longterm. We encourage our changemakers to keep working with their hacker teams –typically every six weeks or as needed, to continue working on individual projects. This is where the real nuts and bolts happen.
At RHoK Australia we pride ourselves on finishing what we start, and this is something that sets us apart from other hackathons.
RHoK can connect you with our "changemakers" people doing great stuff in the community. We provide an environment where problem solving and experimentation is encouraged. We help you keep the juices flowing with coffee, snacks, pizza and drinks. Expect to leave a Random hacks if Kindness hackathon weekend with stories, memories and friendships that last long after the weekend ends, and project experience to add to your portfolio.

That means you can hack software, hardware, a car, radio, a website, or even food. At RHoK we use technology to 'hack' social problems, which means we need a wide range of skills. Including...
