On December 2-4 2011, thousands of people in over 28 locations worldwide will be participating in a hackathon called Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK).

Random Hacks of Kindness, started in 2009, is a community of innovation focused on building practical open source solutions to international development and humanitarian challenges.

Nokia in collaboration with Notman House will be hosting this free event for the first time in Montréal! This will be a unique opportunity for students, academics, members of the Montréal tech community, and international development experts, to collaborate on solutions to humanitarian and development challenges.

The event line-up includes a 5 à 7 on December 2nd with a guest speaker from Médecins Sans Frontières, followed by two days of hacking at Notman. Prizes will be awarded!

An info session will be held at Notman House on November 9th from 5 à 7 where some of the challenges will be introduced, as well as some tools that can be used during the hackathon.
