RHoK Boston: Hack the Hub


Are you a hacker? A changemaker? A concerned citizen? Do you want to make Greater Boston better?  We need your skill, vision, experience, and imagination as we hack for Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, and more!

As part of the National Day of Civic Hacking (NDoCH), Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) Boston will facilitate problem solving and collaborations between citizens, communities, and organizations working toward applying civic technologies for social change in the Boston area.

Come join citizen activists, government partners, entrepreneurs, software developers and designers as we identify challenges, write code, and increase access to civic data!
