A hackathon is an event where people get together and develop some awesome technologies in a short time span. Think of it as a creative marathon where at the end you have some product to show for.
What is Code for the Kingdom?
Are you an entrepreneur, technologist or innovator? Have you ever wanted to impact your cities, circles and communities and solve problems that you see around you? Have you ever wanted to be the change? If yes, join us on March 11-13, 2016 for the Nashville's first ever Code for the Kingdom Hackathon.
Code for the Kingdom is a weekend Hackathon series and ongoing ecosystem where the challenges confronting our communities, our society, our families, and our spiritual lives are tackled from a Christian perspective. The movement hosts weekend gatherings in different cities where developers, designers, ideators and others collaborate to advance common good and serve God’s Kingdom.
This first Code for the Kingdom in the Tennessee builds upon the success of previous hackathons, which have already gathered thousands of technologists to create hundreds of projects to do good. This Nashville collaboration will leverage the skills and insights of our 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.
Join some of the most talented developers, designers, entrepreneurs, and creative people in the country as they collaborate with each other to create innovative technology. All of these groups will also work with investors, mentors, innovative non-profits and churches to come up with ideas and projects 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.
Join us this March 11-13 and let’s create technology that matters.
This Hackathon is a non-profit event to encourage the activation and on-going collaboration of a larger ecosystem of all sort 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 from a Christian perspective the challenges confronting our society, our communities, our churches, and our spiritual lives.
Yes. Join us.
Everyone has something to offer to help transform lives. If you come full of ideas there will be technologists eager to be in a team with you.
Yes; we do not provide computers. Please bring anything you’ll need to code.
Yes. We realize that 47 hours is a long time, and that some people might have other commitments, or might prefer to work remotely, or need to go home/hotel to rest and shower. Yet, you need to be present for the initial few hours during the startup demos, and at some point you need be at the venue and do some work onsite. You will also need to be present for the final few hours for the presentations and judging.
Yes the venue will be open for the duration of the event, please bring a sleeping bag, a pillow, or whatever you might need, and find a place at the venue to take a good nap.
You can build on top of something you have, but whatever you present must have new code developed for at least one of the challenges of the hackathon and you must do some of that coding at the hackathon venue during the hackathon hours.
No. The work space will be available non-stop entire durantion of the hackathon but it is up to you and your team to decide on your work schedule.
This is ultimately a question for your team. But neither the organizers nor Code for the Kingdom claims any ownership of any technologies you develop.
Each team will have 3 minutes for their demo and 2 minutes to answer questions.
The final screening is public, although space is limited.
