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.
Ideate. Build. Impact.
Join us for a hackathon in Kirkland, WA, where you will spend the weekend creating technology that matters with like-minded people.
Developers, designers, entrepreneurs, creative individuals from all disciplines, investors, non-profits, and churches, will design and create new ways to tackle challenges confronting our society, our communities, and our lives from a Christian perspective.
Friday, March 9, 2018, 5:00 PM to Saturday, March 10, 2018, 5:30 PM
- Northwest University
- 5520 108th Ave · Kirkland, WA
- Argue Health Sciences Building Room 231/233
What to bring
Bring your laptop and other things you need to be creative and productive. If you have an idea you'd like to pitch, come with a 30 second elevator pitch. If you don't have an idea to pitch, you can work on your own, or join one of the many inspiring projects people are sharing.
Important to know
C4TK is FREE this year! Having said that, if you RSVP, but decide not to come, let us know ASAP so we can plan for food accordingly.
The venue will remain open non-stop during the entire 24 hours. You can go home and rest or work through the night to make something awesome--whichever you prefer!
We want to make this hackathon a success, particularly for people who spend the hackathon outside their technical comfort zone. So we are sharing this spreadsheet to help people get prepared in advance. For example, if someone plans to build a web app, they can explain what framework their using, tips for setting up a dev environment and tutorials so others can get familiar with the technology. Someone who typically works on a different framework can try it out to see if it's for them. We're hoping this will let people dive right in on hackathon day.
Parking is free.

The fourth Seattle Code for the Kingdom hackahton builds upon the success of the 2013, 2014 and 2016 Seattle Code for the Kingdom hackathons, as well as the 2015 Global hackathon and previous regional hackathons, which have already gathered over 3500 technologists to create over 330 projects to do good. This largest ever global faith-inspired tech collaboration will continue to activate technologists and other creative people to give their skills and some time as their contribution to the mission field, and it will also leverage the skills and in- sights of entrepreneurs, designers, and technologists to foster an entrepreneurial culture with Christian values.
Come, participate and address a number of challenges aimed at helping release the oppressed, teaching God’s Word, healing the sick, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and supporting the church and the body of Christ.
Join us and let’s together create technology that matters.
