Des Moines Charity Hack 2020
Event Category 

Each year, dsmHack holds a 48-hour hackathon to help local nonprofit organizations solve their technology problems. This flagship event connects technology enthusiasts including developers, designers, and project managers and partners them with nonprofits selected through an application process.

The hackathon begins Thursday evening as technology professionals and nonprofit representatives gather early in the evening. Nonprofit organizations chosen through our selection process (applications due January 31, 2020) introduce their technology challenges. Teams form to address the needs of the organizations and the next 48 hours are spent solving technology problems, learning new skills, and building friendships. Meals, snacks, and beverages are provided to participants. The event culminates on Saturday with a presentation and celebration of what each team accomplished.
