Devs Without Borders http://devswithoutborders.org, the organization behind the upcoming <Br/eak>PovertyHackathon http://devswithoutborders.org/breakpoverty are looking for students with a background in development, hardware or software, who want to learn new technologies, build awesome stuff and work with smart people in Toronto and Kenya.
The <Br/eak>Poverty Hackathon will bring charitable-minded developers together to build life changing applications for the developing world. These apps will help those in rural and impoverished areas with farming, small business, health and education: as many of their own channels to technology, communication and knowledge is through their mobile device. The winning app will be test launched by the Charity Event Partner Free The Children in rural Kenya.
This will be Canada’s first International Development hackathon to connect developers in Toronto and Nairobi to build applications on web and mobile that benefit individuals living in rural and impoverished areas in East Africa. Hosted at Bitmaker Labs in Toronto, with Kenyan Attendees teleconferencing in, teams will be able to create meaningful projects from scratch in just 25 hours.
