About Random Hacks of Kindness

Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) Australia is a part of a global community of technologists and changemakers who are ‘hacking for good’. Twice a year, RHOK runs hackathons that bring together volunteer developers and tech-savvy do-gooders to work with charities, community groups and social enterprises. Australia has one of the most vibrant and engaged RHoK communities in the world, and RHOK Australia is the largest and longest running civic hackathon. RHOK offers ongoing support during the year to make sure that solutions are deployed and used by the wider community.

General Coding and Project Work

The rest of the session will be general coding. Feel free to use this time to work on a new project, go through some of the work we did at the Python Software Carpentry workshop, or brush up your coding skills by working through an online course. We recommend Codecademy, Khan Academy and Coursera to begin with. Examples of projects created by SHW participants can be found here.
