Community spirit T

he festive season is the perfect time to remember your neighbours and those less priveleged than yourself. Cooking up a storm, dropping in with a gift and developing apps to improve community services are all ways to show you care.

Neighbourhood First Hackathon: building apps for neighbourhoods Dare to DREAM is the theme of the Neighbourhood First App-building Hackathon, currently under way. It is a collaborative and developmental competition for teams of students aged 11-21. Participants have a mission to fulfill: solving a real-life problem or improving quality of life by means of innovation and technology. Hackathon workshop tutors guide them to uncover suitable community issues or inconveniences so that they have a specific target within their respective neighbourhoods. They are then given the resources and guidance needed to build a workable solution with a mobile app prototype. Usable, functioning software or hardware is the outcome, resulting from innovative design thinking. Coding workshops in December 2018 precede presentation of apps at a pitching workshop and pitching day in February 2019. The Award Ceremony is on 16 February and the completed work of all participating teams will be on display. 主辦機構 Organised by
