International Disaster Conference & Expo
Sat, Feb 7 – Sun, Feb 8
The International Disaster Conference & EXPO (IDCE) seeks developers, designers and practitioners working in public safety-related fields to participate in the inaugural IDCE hackathon, February 7 – 8, 2015 at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
A hackathon is an event where computer programmers, technology developers, designers and other creative thinkers can collaborate in a contained environment to create new technologies and solutions in innovative ways within 24-hours. 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.
Registration for #DisasterTech is free, but limited to the first 50 registrants: www.eventbrite.com/e/disastertech-hackathon-tickets-15137705284
