we match up organisations that have a social impact,
with skilled technologists who want to make a difference,
to develop open-source solutions to the challenges facing society

Random Hacks of Kindness (RHoK) Ottawa is a part of a global community of technologists and changemakers who are ‘hacking for good’. We run hackathons that bring together volunteer developers and tech-savvy do-gooders to work with charities, community groups and social enterprises.

RHoK was originally started as a global initiative in 2009 by a number of big science and technology organizations in the United States. We’ve been running in Ottawa since 2012.

We are currently curating our projects for the June event. Check back soon.
