As you write your New Year’s Resolution, we hope you add “hacking for good” on your list.
Just one weekend or event can make an impact, we’ve seen it and heard from you firsthand on how these opportunities make a difference.
Here’s a recap video of some of our 2018 event highlights — don’t they look like fun?
Now our list isn’t complete since many more events have yet to be announced, so we encourage you to stay alert on Medium and on your other social media channels. Heck, if you want to throw your own event this year, give us a shout!
