Caritakathon, a portmanteau of caritas and hackathon, is a 2-day event done in hackathon format where teams shall design & build websites for charitable and non-profit organizations.
Boracay, Visayas, & Mindanao Rooms
8/F 6750 Ayala Avenue
Teams can have 2 to 3 members each. Each team will be randomly assigned a charity, to be announced at the start of the hackathon.
Teams must submit a one-page website containing background information about each member, including skills, experience, and information about past/present work. This is so the organizers can get to know you better, determine your eligibility for participation, and get a sign of commitment from you.
Let us know if you are looking for teammates and we will help you out!
Non-profit or charity organizations that are interested in becoming beneficiaries can sign up here.
Orgs shall be sent a Design Brief that must be submitted at the latest two weeks prior to the hackathon. Materials necessary for the teams to build the websites must be ready at the latest one week prior. We will provide instructions for upload, or get the physical copy (CD or USB) at the pre-event bootcamp.
There must be at least 1 representative present throughout the weekend of the event who will communicate their needs & goals for the website.
For additional inquiries, just email us.
Both orgs and teams must attend their respective pre-event bootcamps, where they will be formally briefed about the event & have their questions answered. Orgs will also turn over their materials here.
On day 1, teams will have 2 hours to meet with their assigned orgs regarding website needs, standards, design, etc.
Teams must stay remain on the premises for the duration of the hackathon although going out for a break (e.g. coffee run) is fine.
Each team will have a maximum of 10 minutes to present to a panel of judges on the 2nd day of the hackathon, at 4:00 pm.
