Sanitation Hackathon

12/1/2012 10:00 AM - 12/2/2012 5:00 PM

The Cape Town Sanitation Hackathon is coming!

This December civic technologists will team up with subject matter experts in an intensive marathon to find innovative solutions to challenges facing the sanitation sector. The event is born of a global partnership among The World Bank, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Random Hacks of Kindness, Eirene, Nokia, Open Cities, and Civic Commons, among others.

We are delighted to announce that Cape Town will be one of ten cities around the world in which the event will take place simultaneously over the weekend 1-2 December.

We'll be joining London, Nairobi, New York, Pune and 5 other cities, bringing together the cream of the Cape Town software community with sanitation experts from all over SADC.

Judging of the best projects / ideas developed during the hackathon will take place at 3pm on Sunday, with winners announced at 4pm.

We'll keep you posted as the event takes shape, but if you're in Cape Town and interested in attending, please bookmark
