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.
