Openhack Gothenburg 2020 in collaboration with GBG Tech Week
Welcome to Openhack Gothenburg 2020!
Openhack is a collaborative community where ideas and knowledge are being exchanged in order to solve humanitarian challenges through open source development. Our hackathons serve as the foundation of our community where physical meetings take place and innovations are sparked to life. This is where we bring tech volunteers, aid organizations, social actors, and sponsors together in the same building to work together.
Since Openhack was first founded in 2015 as a non-profit project under Engineers Without Borders we so far have organized nine humanitarian hackathons, each with over 100 registered participants from all over Sweden. We have collaborated with over 25 humanitarian organisations and worked on over 50 challenges
Are you a creative problem solver or enjoy coding? Do you have a passion for working with humanitarian issues? If the answer to these questions is yes, this is the event for you!
For 48 hours, developers, designers and motivated people from all over Sweden will gather for a hackathon in Gothenburg. The focus will be to leverage Open Source code to solve challenges society faces.
Openhack Gothenburg is a non-profit-event created with
backing from Engineers Without Borders. The hackathon is free and open for everyone, and sleeping as well as food arrangements will be offered. Register as a group or as a single and we will match you with other team mates. No experience in coding required – all you need is the ideas and motivation to create awesome tech solutions for the good of humanity!
