Mitigating the effects of COVID-19 in our community

Hope hacks is a hackathon open to anybody with a vision and a goal of carrying out solutions that can help migitate the detremental effects of the coronavirus on our community.

With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, many societal problems have arose. It is our goal to band together innovators to build engineering solutions and take on such issues. 

Community hacks is a great oppurtunity for anyone interested in the field of computer science. All levels are welcome and anyone with a vision of innovation can participate. 

Although there is no restricted theme in this hackathon, creating a project that targets the effects of the covid 19 pandemic is recommended. 

Here is a list of steps for you to follow in order to attend community hacks:

Step 1: Register

Registration will be done on devpost. It is important for everyone who wants to attend Community Hacks to register on Devpost as it allows for easy team formation and an general impression of how many attendees we are getting.

Step 2: Read the Rules 

It is extremely important that everyone reads the rules and code of conduct for eligibility in Community Hacks. This is to prevent any unfairness or misunderstandings that might occur later in the hackathon. 

Step 3: Start Hacking

We are called a hackathon for a reason. This is the time where you can build whatever project you want to make an impact on the community. You can work in groups or individually, however groups may not exceed 4 people.
