RHoK is an event and competition to create immediately applicable solutions

problem-solvers from around the world, RHoK aims to use technology to tackle
disaster relief, social development, climate change, and human rights.
Here's your chance to volunteer your time and hack for humanity.

RHoK Philly begins at 9am on Saturday, June 4th . Show up with a team of 2-4
hackers (or join a team here!) Pick one of the dozens of available social
impact problem-definitions and see what you can make by Sunday afternoon.
The best project will be featured around the globe. Space is limited so be
sure to pre-register. If you have a global problem to suggest, get involved
in the discussion on the RHoK site (http://www.rhok.org) and submit it!

There will also be a keynote talk by Roger Dingledine of the Tor Project (
https://torproject.org). Plus other special guests!

This is a FREE event and open to the public. We will provide food, prizes,
Internet, power, and logistics. Just bring your laptop!

* The focus is on software but we need participants with a range of skills,
not just programmers! We need both techies and non-technical individuals who
understand these local and global challenges.
