Come and work with us in these dynamic 24 hours! We are waiting for you if you are:

» an expert in the fight against corruption
» a programmer and you are quite good at open source platforms
» a graphic designer or artist who is familiar with information and data visualization

During the Data is Beautiful event-series we are organizing a Hackathon as part of Transparency International and Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) global call where in cooperation with several chapters from different regions we would like to promote, scale up and integrate innovative and sustainable Information and Communications Technology solutions and visualizing methods in the fight against corruption.

Every country has a local theme regarding corruption. In Hungary we will work on the relationship of young people and corruption, based on a 2012 questionnaire and a study made by TI Hungary. Our aim is to encourage youngsters to realize corruption in their everyday life, and to support them with online/offline tools in fighting against it.

What is a Hackathon?
An event series for programmers, with a duration of 24-48-hours, where designers create creative open source solutions for a special theme.
