Developers and NGO’s Came Together for the 5 th KindHack at Symphony Solutions.
APRIL 11, 2019, LVIV, UKRAINE: Symphony Solutions continued its tradition of hacking for charity, providing needed software projects for local NGO’s. This is valuable for charitable organizations who have no budgets for these projects and gratifying for developers who choose to donate their time to worthy causes. The popularity and success of their first KindHack in 2014 motivated Symphony Solutions to perpetuate the event.
From a record over 30 NGO project submissions, seven projects were selected. Selection is based on 1) value to the community and 2) challenging enough to encourage participation by developers.
6. Winners were announced.
Winning projects appear below:
3 rd Place: Helpmap.io is an online location referral system that organizes donation opportunities. They needed a referral map to simplify the donation process, such that people with items to donate know where to take them.
It is important to remember that everyone wins at KindHacks. Seven NGO’s leave with completed projects and developers leave with the satisfaction of having created something of value.
NGO’s whose projects were not included into selected 7 joined workshops 1) to learn how to use digital marketing strategies to increase website traffic to enhance relevance and interest among targets, and 2) to learn to build basic websites without the use of developers. These additional streams provided equally valuable information to participants, such that they can put this new learning to practical use.
