do_action Beirut 2019

7 December 2019 at Beirut Digital District

do_action Beirut charity hackathon is back for a third installment! It will take place at Beirut Digital District on 7 December 2019, 8:30am – 6:30pm.

do_action Beirut Hackathon is a community-organized event that is focused on using WordPress to give deserving Lebanese non-profit organizations (NGOs) their own online presence. The one-day event includes participants from Beirut WordPress community (wpBeirut) coming together to plan and build brand new websites for a number of local NGOs.

Here are some of the websites we created at our 2017 hackathon and 2018 hackathon (links for 2 min videos):

This year, for the third annual do_action event, we are going to design websites for five (5) charitable organizations.
