San Francisco
Codeathon 2019

Code for Venezuela and AlumnUSB invite all developers, designers, and product builders to join us this April.


The Event


Code for Venezuela SF is a codeathon that will take place in San Francisco from April 12th through April 14th, 2019. We will host 50 participants locally and the event will also be open to remote participants.  

Through this event, we want to leverage technology and tech talent towards solving real challenges presented by our partner organizations.

We also hope that this serves as a way to foster a community of individuals that are interested in using technology for social good and care about the current situation of Venezuela.

The Format

In order to work in projects that will have a direct impact and continuity after the event, we have partnered with institutions from Venezuela to create a set of challenges to work on during the event.

You can expect challenges in the following areas:

  • Using data to analyze, understand and communicate the Venezuelan crisis.

  • Digital products and platforms to connect the diaspora with the country.
