do_action Beirut charity hackathon is back for a second installment! It will take place at Antwork on 20 October 2018, 8:00 – 18:00.
do_action hackathons are community-organized events that are focused on using WordPress to give local non-profit organizations their own online presence. The one-day event includes participants from the local WordPress community coming together to plan and build brand new websites for a number of local organizations.
Websites created at our first hackathon 2017 (2min video):
We have selected the non-profits that we will be working with this year and you can see all of them in the form below. If you would like to participate in the hackathon and work on one of the sites, then please select the non-profit that you would like to work with, select your role on the team, and then fill in your details. Please also make sure you have look at the participant’s guide for some info on how the day will work.
As always, we’re looking for Social Media Managers, Content Managers, Project Managers, Designers, Developers, and Quality Assurance Testers for each of the teams, so if you have any experience managing websites in any capacity then you can participate!

Project managers are expected to communicate with their non-profit’s representative prior to the event and discuss things like hosting, content, scope.
