HACKATHON GUIDELINES

 

What is Code for the Kingdom?

 

Code for the Kingdom is a weekend hackathon and ongoing ecosystem where global issues are tackled from a Christian perspective. Join an incredible group of individuals who are applying their skills and experiences to advance common good and serve God’s Kingdom. In collaboration with innovative nonprofits and churches, we’ll write code and create technology to help release the oppressed, teach God’s Word, heal the sick, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and support the church and the body of Christ.

This Hackathon is a non-profit event to encourage the activation and on-going collaboration of a larger ecosystem of all sorts of creative individuals (including programmers, designers, creatives, entrepreneurs, and leaders of churches, non-profits, and the marketplace) who are passionate about creating technologies to tackle the challenges confronting our society, our communities, our churches, and our spiritual lives.
