Dokotoro Project Hackathon Planned for January 27 in Oakland

Where: Pacific Institute

Bring:  A laptop if you have one

Why: Because we need a LOT of help from volunteers to keep this project moving. We have tasks to match any skill set, for example: proofreading and editing in English and French, formatting Word documents, inserting and manipulating images, researching and contacting potential donors, creating content for the website and Facebook page, etc.

Steering Committee members will be on hand to get you started and answer any questions. Pizza and beverages provided. We may retire to a local pub afterwards for drinks or to watch football, if that’s your thing (the NFL Pro Bowl starts at 4pm Pacific).

We’re hoping to create a convivial atmosphere where we can come together, build community, have fun, and do important work. Please consider joining us!
