Taarifa goes big in the June 2012 Hackathon

1 Jun

It’s happening again…. another big global hackathon, hosted online by Random Hacks of Kindness.  The event is being held in cities all over the world this June 2nd-3rd, and Taarifarians are taking part in a big way!

Leading the pack is Dirk Gorissen who took on the task of organising the UK’s only event this round. Cheers Dirk! Joining him at the University of Southampton are Nico and David – and the more who can join, the merrier! Taarifa’s presence will be global with Mark Iliffe partaking in the Dar es Salaam event.
These guys will share a bit about Taarifa at their events, and aim to recruit some more hackers to help build the latest features.

But they’ll of course be lending their skills and joining forces with others working on a range of featured problems, submitted by Amnesty International, the National Council of La Raza, NASA, Alerted, and more.

Of course, a big Thank You to the sponsors of the Southampton Hackathon and Random Hacks of Kindness:
