Random Hack of Kindness at Albany

On Saturday June 1st, Albany will join the National Day of Civic Hacking with a Random Hack of Kindness Event:

In this event we will join pioneering citizens across the United States blazing new trails for social innovation in an event of unprecedented scope. Nearly one hundred teams across the country, supported by more than 20 government agencies, will come together with a common purpose: to invent new applications that leverage open, public data for the common good. This is the National Day of Civic Hacking.



We will meet at the State University of New York at Albany
Social Science Building, Room SS 134 (NOT Science Library, SLG020)


From 9am to 4pm,
You are welcome to join at any time and stay as long as you want.


Being a Hackathon, this is an open space for you to join, bring your own ideas and meet with like-minded people. Below are some of the activities that we anticipate to perform:

• Mobile Project for Emergency Responders
• Learning Raspberry Pi
• Hacking the Google Chromebook
• Google maps / Open maps
**Attendees will get Amazon server gift certificates for $100!**
