    Random Hacks of Kindness Seattle
    Jigsaw Renaissance

    +) GWOBorg and Tropo are joining forces with Random Hacks of Kindness to participate in a global hackathon — a marathon hacking event with multiple global locations bringing together developers from all over the world to hack on real-world problems relating to natural disaster risk and response.

    Jigsaw Renaissance in Seattle is graciously hosting the Seattle hackathon and invites developers and coders in the Seattle area to join forces and hack for the global good - interested participants can sign up on this Eventbrite!

    What is this Hackathon Event? The International Open Data Hackathon is the first of its kind in the world - the Open Data Hackathon coincides perfectly with the RHOK, so both hackathons will take place at Jigsaw throughout the 24 hours.
    RHOK includes subject matter experts from organizations around the world (if that's you then we want you too!), who are right now defining and refining real-world problems into concrete problem definitions ready for hackery magic.

    When and Where for the Hackathon? The second global #RHoK hackathon event takes place around the world on December 4- 5, 2010. Jigsaw Renaissance, a Seattle hacker and maker space, is hosting the event. Tropo.com is sponsoring food and drinks throughout the Seattle event and developers and participants are invited to use join the community and use Jigsaw space throughout the hackathon.

    The event starts at 9:00am GMT on December 4th and ends December 5th at 8:00pm GMT.
