Typhoon Haiyan – Geeklist #Hack4Good

Typhoon Haiyan – Geeklist #Hack4Good

Calling all developers, designers, NGOs and tech thinkers… we have launched a First Responders Geeklist #hack4good to help people and animals in the way of this horrific Super Typhoon. Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda), one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever observed, made landfall Friday morning in the Philippines and has devastated many regions of the country, killing thousands, destroying homes and communities and leaving over 300,000+ in evacuation centres. We’re uniting to help.

Google Code-in 2013

The Google Code-in is a contest to introduce pre-university students (ages 13-17) to the many kinds of contributions that make open source software development possible. The Google Code-in 2013 contest runs from November 18, 2013 to January 6, 2014.

According to Mr. Law:

2 years ago, one of our [students] made it all the way to the top 10 finalists board and was invited out to Google’s campus.
Even though it might look difficult, [students have been] able to finish tasks every year. …  It takes a lot of work, but building an open source portfolio is the difference between finding an awesome job and being someone’s code monkey.
