Description

Hacking for Humanity 2019 | Girls in Tech Australia presents Hack the Future
(Pre-Hack: 11 Oct | Hackathon: 19-20 Oct)

Hackers - Register here to be a part of Hacking For Humanity 2019. Join us over 2.5 days

Calling all developers, product managers, designers, UXers, sales and marketing professionals!

Be a part of this year's Hacking For Humanity: Hack the Future, a hackathon presented by Girls in Tech Australia to be held in October.

Imagine how technology could impact what the world looks like in 2050. Hack the Future aims to solve issues that will help us pave a better world - whether this is coming up with a new marketing strategy or creating an app to engage with a diverse audience - hackers have the opportunity to choose from a broad spectrum of business problems to shape this vision.

The problems will be pitched to you during the Pre-Hack (October 11) when you will also form teams of 5. Following that, the teams of hackers will brainstorm, problem-solve and prototype for two days over a weekend (October 19 & 20).

Gather your gang, have a weekend of innovation and celebrate diversity in the tech community through the Girls In Tech Hack for Humanity!
