Des Moines Charity Hack 2018

When: Thursday, March 22 – Saturday, March 24, 2018

Where: FFA Enrichment Center – DMACC Ankeny Campus

Each year, dsmHack holds a 48-hour hackathon to help local nonprofit organization solve their technology problems. This flagship event connects technology enthusiasts including developers, designers, and project managers and partners them with nonprofits selected through an application process.

We have a new location! The FFA Enrichment Center on the DMACC Ankeny Campus will turn into dsmHack headquarters for 48 hours.

What happens during the event?

The atmosphere of dsmHack is unlike any other. The weekend kicks off on Thursday evening, with technology professionals and nonprofit representatives arriving early in the evening. Each nonprofit organization will have a few minutes to introduce their technology challenge to the participants, and from there, teams will form to address the needs of the organizations. Once teams are formed, the hacking begins!

For 48 hours, participants and organizations will hack their hearts out, solving technology problems, learning new skills, and building friendships. At Des Moines Charity Hack, the doors don’t close. All participants are free to come and go as they please with meals, snacks, and beverages provided. The event culminates on Saturday with a presentation and celebration of what each team accomplished.
