Leadingage Hackfest Oct. 30 – Nov. 1

August 4, 2015


LeadingAge has opened the application period for the 2015 LeadingAge HackFest, their annual event that challenges participants to “Engage with Age” by creating a technology-driven tool aimed at improving the lives of older adults and their families. Anyone with an interest in technology (you don’t need to be a computer programmer) is encouraged to apply. The tool you and your team develops could be an app, a website, an interactive online experience, or a device. Participants will have 1 day to design and build their tool. Tools don’t need to be fully developed or complete, but presentations should include a plan for how the project could be implemented and launched. Participants will keep intellectual property rights to anything they create during the hackathon. A Youtube video about the event is available here. Details about the event and an application to participate can be found at our website. Photo by Sean MacEntee
