21 Mar Code for the Kingdom hackathon – stirring up debate in the Dallas startup community
The Code for the Kingdom hackathon is underway this weekend at the Addison Treehouse, and while a local hackathon isn’t usually a source of controversy, this particular event has been a topic of debate in our community.
The event kicked off Friday, with a mission of bringing together coders and developers “who are applying their skills and experiences to advance common good and serve God’s Kingdom.”
Hanah Cho with the Dallas Morning News published an article yesterday about the hackathon, and several entrepreneurs in the area shared the article on social media, spurring a debate on what such an event means for the larger community.
You can read further comments and discussion surrounding the event on social media.
Note that LAUNCH DFW, as a media and events company that supports the local tech and startup community, doesn’t ascribe to any religious or political views — the hackathon is on our community calendar, because it’s about tech and giving opportunities to people who are interested in tech.
