About CodeAcross 2019

This year’s CodeAcross will focus on building community resilience for the long-term. How do we help each other make good judgment? How do we build on what we already have? How do we move from some building solutions β€œfor” others to β€œus” building solutions for ourselves?

Just as importantly, the event will be designed to reflect these questions. As a community, we wish to move away from an unnecessary focus on quick fixes and competitive prizes. Technology is not an end solution, but a means to an end. We plan for an event which can help participants of all backgrounds reach a common understanding on the human depth and breadth of our community challenges as the basis for the solutions we build.

The event will be accessible and youth-friendly. We intend for the hackathon to be a pop-up public process incubator: to seed connections for collaborators to continue building long after the event is done.
