Do_action WordPress Lagos Charity Hackathon

The Lagos WordPress Community in partnership with the WordPress Global Foundation, How Do You Tech and Upperlink organised their first 1-day hackathon (on July 14, 2018) aimed at building useful websites for 5 duly registered non-profit organizations in the region that are impacting and inspiring lives in Lagos, Nigeria.

On Sponsorships, want to sponsor this event same time next year?

We are accepting sponsors to make this event possible and successful in 2019. We anticipate a participation of 60 – 100 people next year, and we will be building 5 or more websites. Sponsors for venue, meals, themes, plugins, refreshments, swags, and any other expenses are always welcomed.

In return:

  • You can have representation at the event, (as participants, not spectators, tasks will be assigned).
  • We will add your logo to the sponsors list on this page.
  • We will make social media announcements before, during and after the event.
  • You can distribute your custom branded swag to the participants.

Non-Profit Organisations

P.S: we only accepted registered non-profit organisations operating in or around Lagos.

Who Participated?

Each website was built by a team of 4 – 8 people in the following roles; Project Manager, Designer, Developers (2), Content Manager, Social Media Manager and Quality Assurance Tester. All roles were filled with only a few no-shows due to unforeseen emergencies on the d-day.

Please Note: All teams members worked together before, during and after the event for the common good of the hackathon and the non-profits.

Websites that were built on that day:
