We established the reverse hackathon to encourage dialogue in and support the development of creative solutions that allow for greater and healthier relationships between people and technology.
Using principles in human-computer interaction, humane design, software development, and tech ethics, Rehack urges participants to think deeply about their interactions with technology and redesign consumer tech products in a more meaningful, socially responsible way. No coding experience is necessary!
This year's event will be focused on online education. Join us for a weekend of redesigning today's tech products to fit virtual learning environments!
Note: This event is only open to those who have already applied at http://rehack.co — we are not sending updates through Devpost. If you are interested in staying in the loop, sign up for our emailing list at our website!
