This is a formal application that will be used in conjunction with a phone interview to select the 2018 charity partners for the Capital One Gift the Code Hackathon.
For the past two years, hundreds of developers, designers and UI/UX artists have come together at the Gift the Code Hackathon. Each year, over the course of 40 hours, teams develop open-source solutions that address the challenges of six deserving charities that can be helped through technology.
In 2018, Gift the Code will once again bring together an incredible range of technology experts to help advance missions of the six selected organizations. In just 40 hours, participants with a passion for problem solving will form teams to brainstorm, build and submit technology solutions for charity challenges.
There's no cost to participate for charities; Capital One will generously be covering the expenses of this event. However, participating charities will need to commit a certain amount of time, staffing and resources.
