This hackathon keeps on giving.

Random Hacks of Kindness is coming back to D.C. this weekend. The twice-a-year event looks to bring together community members who request projects, and technologists who build the solutions over the two-day stretch.

According to the Eventbrite page, the June 24-25 event will be held at Internews Network offices, with support from partners Help Earth Foundation and Cloudsploit. Along with prospect of helping the community, there may be a chance to get extra help on voice technology, as Alexa Skills programmers will be at the event.


The event is part of a global network that’s holding events throughout the month of June. D.C. has been a part of the series since the start, dating back to 2010.
