What is the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of hackathons? A group of coders huddled over computers, Right? Now hold that picture, and imagine that instead of an office, they’re sprawled out in front of Dory and Nemo’s friends. This is exactly what will be happening in 65+ cities all over the world on 10th and 11th of February – all for a common goal.
Fishackathon is an epic, global hackathon to help make Earth’s waters, aquaculture, and fisheries more sustainable & equitable. Overfishing and other serious problems harm marine environments. Protections exist, but actual enforcement faces major obstacles.
To combat this, Fishackathon brings together thousands of concerned designers, developers, and subject matter experts for a weekend to build practical tech solutions to endemic problems defined by the world’s most respected fisheries experts.
Save our waters, save our world!
How it works?
As with all HackerNest hackathons, you would need to register as a participant (or as a team). On the day of the event, you will be hooked up with an expert mentor and they will help teams hone their ideas into projects that will solve actual (rather than imagined!) problems. In the end, teams have 3 minutes to present their demos to judges. Then, the ‘city winner’ would move forward to the global finals.
When & Where?
Karachi Fishackathon is being held at Gaditek Karachi on 10th and 11th of Feb. It’s a fun packed two days event that will run all the way from 9am to 7pm. Students and young professionals are encouraged to register for free and participate in this otherwise wise paid global Hackathon.
