#TechFugees- a tech community response to the European refugee crisis

Aim: help

What is going on?

Begun in London, #Techfugees is now a pan-European initiative. In Warsaw we are bringing together technologists, scientists and designers in a two-week hacking sprint based at University of Warsaw’s Digital Economy Lab (DELab). The model is largely one familiar to every geek – a hackathon by ad-hoc teams – but with a few crucial differences. We will be working over a two-week period, and collaborating with other#TechFugees projects around Europe. The aim is to give of our time and brainpower.

Participants will have a chance:
• to attend the lectures of invited mentors and experts;
• to participate in the workshops;
• to conduct the research in teams;
• to implement in practice the idea/ plan that the team will come up with.

Agenda:

Friday 13 November 6:30 p.m. : briefing, context presentations, generation of ideas and formation of teams

Week till following Friday: teams research, plan and design their solutions

Friday 20 November : review, mentoring and comparing of notes

Week till following Friday : hacks away!

Friday 27 November : demo day

If you are a developer, designer, economist, social scientist, student, thinker, in fact anyone interested in contributing your knowledge and skills, sign up!
