Code It Forward is a social initiative by Lighthouse Labs where developers, designers, and ideators gather together for a weekend to solve tech problems for charities and non-profits.
These organizations are using inadequate, out-of-date systems, and as a result, aren’t helping as many people as they could.
“Many Vancouver charities are run by great people,” the organization explains. “But these people aren’t great coders.”
Lighthouse Labs want to bring together Vancouver’s tech community to give creative innovative technologies that will benefit them for years to come.
Code It Forward takes place July 25-26.
“We want to make a statement to Canada that a hackathon can create genuine social good, and establish a tradition that will inspire hundreds of developers nationwide to participate,” says Lighthouse Labs.
