The first hackathon for blind, visually impaired and sighted people in Switzerland 16.06.2022 - 17.06.2022

The Swiss Association of the Blind (SBV) and Red Hat, together with their partner VSHN AG, are organizing a hackathon on June 16 and 17, 2022 at the Hotel Sheraton in Zurich.

When we develop technology, we often forget that not all people can use it in the same way. Blind people or people with visual impairments need solutions that are barrier-free and designed to meet their needs. With the Hackathon 2022, the Swiss Association of the Blind and Visually Impaired (SBV) and Red Hat are making their goals in the areas of diversity and inclusion a reality and creating solutions that blind and visually impaired people can benefit from.

The common goal is to bring blind, visually impaired and sighted people together using state-of-the-art technology and to create the best solutions.
The Red Hat Openshift platform will be leverage for this. Be inspired by our creativity and become part of the Red Hat community.

Register today and be part of it! The goal is to form heterogeneous teams in which the various strengths are strengthened.

You should have a laptop available and the ideas developed by the participants will be evaluated and awarded by a jury appointed by the organizer.
