BYU ACM has teamed up with SocialCoding4Good to help you use your coding skills to make serious social impact.
At Weekend of Code, you’ll help build an open source web application to allow educators to easily create and issue Open Badges.
When you participate in Weekend of Code, you’re guaranteed to learn valuable skills, get free pizza and snacks, and make a meaningful contribution to a noble project.
Open source software from organizations, such as FrontlineSMS and Benetech, have become an important tool in tackling large global social causes in areas such as disaster relief, human rights and education. This class of software is typically referred to as Humanitarian Free and Open Source Software (HFOSS).
SocialCoding4Good aims to increase the awareness of this new type of volunteerism or “Social Coding For Good”; and match product developers with HFOSS projects that can utilize their ideas, skills and time.
We hope you'll join us! Please email Trevor Dixon with any questions.
