For Good First Issue is a curated list of open source projects that are also digital public goods and need the help of developers.
Do you write code in your free time, for fun? Ever thought about doing it to save lives?
Random Hacks of Kindness is a global hackathon on December 4 and 5 (this weekend!) to create apps for the millions of people who suffer the effects of disasters.
The first RHoK event resulted in applications that were later used during the devastating earthquakes in Haiti and Chile. The second event – held simultaneously in six countries around the world – produced a tool that is currently being piloted in the Caribbean by the World Bank.
Right now they’re looking for coders and tech students to participate at RHoK events at multiple locations around the world. U.S. locations include Atlanta, Chicago, New York, and Seattle. International locations are Toronto and Vancouver, Canada; Aarhus, Denmark; Berlin, Germany; Bangalore, India; Jakarta, Indonesia; Nairobi, Kenya; Lusaka, Zambia; Bogota, Colombia; and São Paulo, Brazil.
