Global Christian Hackathon

This past weekend, 13 cities participated in a 48-hour hackathon, where more than 800 Christian coders, developers, programmers, designers, pastors, and artists all joined together to develop new apps and websites for global and local followers to the faith. A few of the cities that took part include: Jakarta, Bangalore, Addis Ababa, Guatemala City, London, Waterloo, Atlanta, and Raleigh-Durham. Hackathons have become very popular and are a great way to develop new tech tools to solve a problem or to get into a potential new market. The hackathon allowed live sites and functioning apps and games to be built in a short amount of time. Some of the new websites included: martial and fidelity counseling, direct disaster relief, and combatting sex trafficking. The global hackathon did not need international collaboration, and instead was a great way for each local team to develop its own challenges and try to decide which problems to solve. This was the first attempt to mass collaborate with people of faith all over the world.
