What is Code for the Kingdom?

Code for the Kingdom is a weekend hackathon igniting the Christian purpose of technologists and entrepreneurs to innovate culture shaping technologies that would reclaim our times for the Gospel.

Join an incredible group of individuals who are applying their skills and experiences to advance common good and serve God’s Kingdom. In collaboration with innovative nonprofits and churches, we’ll write code and create technology to help release the oppressed, teach God’s Word, heal the sick, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and support the church and the body of Christ.

Make a difference by writing much-needed code or designing beautiful interfaces. Find a community of peers who want to have fun while serving the Lord.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's a hackathon?

A hackathon is an event where people get together and develop some awesome technologies in a short time span. Think of it as a creative marathon where at the end you have some product to show for.

Who is organizing the 2017 Code for the Kingdom hackathon?

It is being organized locally and in partnership with Indigitious.

What is this hackathon trying to accomplish?

This Hackathon is a non-profit event to encourage the activation and on-going collaboration of a larger ecosystem of all sort of creative individuals ( including programmers, designers, creatives, entrepreneurs, and leaders of churches, non-profits, and the marketplace) who are passionate about creating technologies to tackle from a Christian perspective the challenges confronting our society, our communities, our churches, and our spiritual lives.

Is there a main theme to the Code for the Kingdom Hackathon?

Yes, Transforming Lives. How can technology help alleviate and eradicate all forms of injustice while teaching about God's unconditional love?

I'm from outside . Can I still participate?

Yes. Join us.

I'm not Christian. Can I still participate?

Yes, absolutely.

What if I don't know how to program?

Everyone has something to offer to help transform lives. If you come full of ideas there will be technologists eager to be in a team with you.

Do I have to bring my own laptop?

Yes; we do not provide computers. Please bring anything you'll need to code.

I can't stay the entire time, can I still participate?

Yes. We realize that 47 hours is a long time, and that some people might have other commitments, or might prefer to work remotely, or need to go home/hotel to rest and shower. Yet, you need to be present for the initial few hours during the startup demos, and at some point you need be at the venue and do some work onsite. You will also need to be present for the final few hours for the presentations and judging.

Can I sleep at the venue?

Yes the venue will be open for the duration of the event, please bring a sleeping bag, a pillow, or whatever you might need, and find a place at the venue to take a good nap.

Are there showers at the venue?

No, there are no showers at the venue!

Will I meet my team members before the event?

Possibly. You can use the platform Indigitious at anytime to meet other participants, propose ideas, and recruit or be recruited into a team. But you can also bring your own team, or come alone and become part of a team at the hackathon.

Can I present a technology I already have?

You can build on top of something you have, but whatever you present must have new code developed for at least one of the challenges of the hackathon and you must do some of that coding at the hackathon venue during the hackathon hours.

Won't other teams who are building on top of technologies they already developed, not have an unfair advantage over me

We don't think so. There will be separate awards for teams that present solutions built on their existing technologies, and for teams that start fresh at the hackathon. We want to honor all of you, regardless of whether you have been working for a while on something you are passionate about, or whether you decide on something brand new.

Do I have to work non-stop?

No. The work space will be available non-stop entire durantion of the hackathon but it is up to you and your team to decide on your work schedule.

Who owns the IP of what we make?

This is ultimately a question for your team. But neither the organizers nor Code for the Kingdom claims any ownership of any technologies you develop.

Will I be able to test my presentation before the final presentation?

Yes!

What's the format of the final presentation?

Each team will have 3 minutes for their demo and 2 minutes to answer questions from the judges.

Who will be in attendance at the final presentations?

The final screening is public, although space is limited. Expect a mixture of participants, hi-tech executives, venture capitalists and angels, ministry and non-profit leaders, press, and observers.

Will there be awards given?

Yes, there are 4 categories and each category prize is Rp 4,500,000

What's the hashtag?

C4TK

Who is on the Jury?

The jury's composition will be announced closer to the date of the hackathon.

What are the judging criteria?

The judges will consider Kingdom impact, viability, innovativeness / originality, and completeness.
