HAC (Hack Against Covid) is a virtual hackathon that challenges students to build proactive technology and solutions to safeguard human interaction in the up and coming post covid19 world.
“The uncreative mind can spot wrong answers, but it takes a very creative mind to spot wrong questions.” ― Anthony Jay.
We at Codezoned strongly believe in this and want HAC to be a testament of the same. We are looking for creative and innovative minds that dare to ask the right questions. With lockdowns and safety measures in place, people have been left with nothing but the desire to go out and socialize. As innovators and minds of tomorrow, we want YOU to come up with technology that will help facilitate human interactions in newer ways. Come join us from the comfort of your homes to create a stronger community in these uncertain and trying times. HAC is an innovative platform open for students, professionals, and anybody who is passionate about coding. As a supportive community, we invite people from various backgrounds including designing, marketing, analysis, and entrepreneurship join forces together to visualize a product. We assure that the HAC environment will encourage you to meet and collaborate with other participants. Keeping your safety and comfort in mind, HAC will be conducted virtually to freely facilitate innovation. We will be using discord to communicate throughout the hackathon, and you can find yourself teams using our discord servers.
We'll be suggesting the below four themes to help spark your ideas. Remember that you're welcome to build with the technologies of your choice, across any areas that you think would drive impact for these issues, so feel free to think outside the box too!
Address a spectrum of health initiatives, including preventative/hygiene behaviors, supporting frontline health workers, treatment and diagnosis development and more!
Help businesses stay afloat, build new ways managing supply chains, and move parts of their business online.
Alternative learning environments and tools for students, teachers, and entire school systems.
The above themes are just suggestions. Feel empowered to get creative!
