After hosting local hackathons across Silicon Valley, Seattle, India, and Austin, Code for the Kingdom is launching its first global hackathon on October 2-4, 2015. Featuring 12 host cities, participants will create technologies using a Christian perspective to tackle challenges facing our communities.
Over the past two years, over 900 technologists have created create 86 projects through Code for the Kingdom. This first global collaboration will leverage the skills and insights of international entrepreneurs, designers, and technologists to foster an entrepreneurial culture with Christian values and activate technologists to give their skills and some time as their contribution to the mission field.
Code for the Kingdom’s primary focus isn’t technology but rather culture. Its an entrepreneur culture with Christian values. When you have grass-roots organizers, influential churches, and compelling nonprofits come together to help talented people use their skills for God’s Kingdom, it extends beyond creating cool projects. It fosters culture, community, and purpose.
You can apply to be a host city at the Code for the Kingdom website. Chosen cities will be announced March 2015.
Also, don’t miss another regional hackathon coming up on March 20-22, 2015 in Dallas, TX. I’ll be there and would love to connect.
