Google Hackathon


Hi UBC students!

Google has a challenge for you: how much GOOD can you do in 24 hours for your community?

We are cordially inviting you to participate in our inaugural ‘24Hours Of Good’ event. This event is happening in Google Seattle, New York and Los Angeles.  Google Engineers and technical staff from each non-profit will be on hand at the event to get you started, as well as an App-Engine ‘’Bootcamp’’ to supercharge your coding efforts.  To keep you going and making the most progress for GOOD, we will be providing lots of food, drinks, espresso at 4am!

For the Google Seattle 24 Hours of Good, student teams of between 3-4 participants will join forces with PNW Non Profit Orgs for a 24 hour period, to work on a mission critical technical problem outlined by the NPO.
