2018 Recap


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

Location: FFA Enrichment Center – DMACC Ankeny Campus

With a new location, dsmhack 2018 was our biggest event yet, and our amazing volunteers were able to help not only 9 local nonprofits, but create a 10th project to impact numerous organizations with an app that they can all use. 2018 projects included new websites, mapping tools, monitors and even a nutrition calculator.

In addition to these local nonprofits, a dsmHack team helped create an open source web app for any nonprofit to use during the 2018 hack. Here to Help is a volunteer time-tracking application that can help organizations track time spent by volunteers at events and to report for grant writing purposes.
