Digital DNA’s Tech For Good studio covers all things good that technology can deliver for communities, businesses and individuals.
A range of influential leaders, innovative thinkers and pioneers of some of the world’s best known and impactful tech developments will be in the Tech for Good studio. They will cover topics such as Health, Social Justice, Peace Building, Gender Equality and Skills / Education.
As part of this Tech for Good element of Digital DNA, on Day 1, (6 June) Digital DNA will run a Tech for Good 12 hour Hackathon looking at “How can we utilise technology to reduce Youth Unemployment in Northern Ireland.”
With the youth unemployment rate (% of economically active 18-24 year olds who are unemployed) higher than the UK average at a staggering 12.1%, we are going to create a platform for NI’s brightest minds to collaborate and hack their way to a viable solution to a globally transferable societal problem.
Who Should Enter:
Anyone! Delegates will consist of all experienced levels, from students and junior developers looking to improve their skills, senior developers looking to expand their horizons, designers of all skill-sets, and serious entrepreneurs that can add value to teams.
Entrants can enter as an individual or as a team. Teams will contain a maximum of 5 members.
The hackathon will give delegates 12 hours from 16:00 – 04:00 to create and build working prototypes that will then be pitched to global tech leaders within our industry.
The Teams will be competing to win the opportunity to pitch their concept to Falcon Associates in Dubai, with runner-up, spot prizes and swag to be given away on the night.
