This weekend is about finding lightweight tech ways to improve our collective pandemic response, help our front-line responders, help our communities support each other, and help the world keep track of information in a fast-changing situation. This hackathon is run by the volunteers from End Coronavirus.org, a rapidly growing initiative of NECSI.
The aim of the weekend is to quickly build working prototypes that solve real problems in this pandemic, and that can be rapidly scaled up if they meet an immediate need. You can bring your own idea, or find a project to work on with your team at helpwithcovid.com. If this initial weekend is successful, we will scale up and run more frequent hackathons to prototype and scale more desperately needed tech solutions.
Join us this weekend to fight COVID-19!
