Come hack for urban disaster preparedness!

Geeks Without Bounds is hosting Dublin Hacks in the TOG hacker space as
a way for technologists and coders to contribute to the wellbeing of 
their city during a disaster scenario – and help response efforts go as
smoothly as possible. Urban disaster preparedness seeks to create 
technologies that help empower people in the face of uncertain 
circumstances to be the architects of their own rescue.

So what are we doing?

Curated challenges for urban disaster preparedness will be presented by
local humanitarian and disaster groups, and participants will form 
teams around those challenges. You are also heartily encouraged to 
pitch your own related idea at the event and submit your project at the
final judging. Teams will have all day Saturday to work on their 
projects before final submissions are due at 18:30.

Safe Space.

Coders of all genders and presentations are welcome, and we provide a 
safe space to learn, make mistakes, and try again. We encourage 
techies of all skill sets and experience levels to attend, from the 
brand new coder to the veteran C+er. We set the expectation of 
mutual respect for everyone at the event, and work to make sure 
participants feel welcome.
