RHoK 2

RHoK is a lot of things: a Hack-a-Thon, a community building event, and a chance to bring “software engineers together with disaster risk management experts to identify critical global challenges, and develop software to respond to them.” (from http://www.rhok.org/about/what-is-random-hacks-of-kindness/ ,which has tons of information about what RHoK is). RHoK has honoured Sahana by including us in RHoK #2 and give us a chance to build out our communities as well as our applications.

Post-event we can use this space to share our thoughts, feelings, take-aways, cool new tricks, and ideas for next time.

Problem Definitions

“Problem Definitions” are the core of RHoK. Experts in Emergency Management as well as project & software experts work together to come up with 'problems'; challenges that Emergency Managers face on the ground in a real emergency. They then translate those problems into challenges for developers to solve through technology.

Some challenges are selected as “featured hacks” and become the competition at the core of RHoK. (Did we mention there are prizes?)
