I’m a bit late to the announcement party but I’ll be attending the first ever White House Foster Case and Technology Hackathon this week on behalf of Clef! To be honest, I’m a bit nervous about how this’ll go down. This brand of nervousness is the same kind that I’ve had when I started a new job and it’s only for two days so it’ll wash over soon. I’ll be sure to create a Twitter thread based on the tweet that blog post originates from.
On the 26th and 27th, the hackathon hosted by the White House, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and Think of Us, will focus on tightening bonds between NPO (non-profit organizations), child welfare leaders and foster care families and alumni, as well as developers, technologists and leaders from the technology sector. If you asked me, this was long overdue.
Mad people are going to be there from Slack, StackOverflow, Microsoft, you name it!
