DisasterTech Hackathon

DisasterTech Hackathon

Ten years since Hurricane Katrina, the IDCE #DisasterTech hackathon seeks to foster the convergence of the disaster and tech communities, driving innovation and opportunity for collaboration, and will facilitate the development of multiple platform-agnostic, open technology solutions by encouraging competition among the private sector and tech communities. Participants will be guided and receive input on challenges, experiences, and real-world examples from experts directly involved in disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. Topics that are expected to be explored at the hackathon are: engaging the public and digital volunteers in disaster preparedness, response, and recovery; the ability to leverage information from new channels in new ways to support faster decision-making; more efficient collaboration through shared technologies and data, and more.
