Some common questions about #HACK
What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is an event in which computer programmers, developers and technologists join others in the field of software development, like graphic designers, interface designers, project managers to collaborate intensively on projects.
What is unique about Indigitous Hack?
What separates Indigitous #HACK from others is that our participants are focused on mobilizing technologists to support God’s work across the nations, offering communities a chance to learn from and with one another as they address interconnected and related challenges. We are focused on inviting people to meet the missional gap, seeing the Great Commission fulfilled through technology and digital strategies.
WHAT IS A MASS COLLABORATION?
Historically, hackathons have been exceptional opportunities for hands-on, creative problem solving of difficult technological challenges. Global hackathons, or “mass collaborations”, take this opportunity to another dimension, by connecting an international community around a common vision to meet common needs in their communities.
I can't code, can i still participate?
To get right to the point… yes! #HACK welcomes anyone who wants to collaborate together on missional technology projects that have long-term impact. While our work focuses on all kinds of technology, you don’t have to be a programmer to get involved. We need designers, photographers, writers, project managers, social media gurus – creative thinkers of all types! The most important skillsets are the abilities to work with others and find ways to solve problems. Also, while Indigitous #HACK is explicitly Christian, participants from any (or no) faith background are openly welcomed.
