Engineering for Social Good

A session at Open Development Camp 2014

Friday 10th October, 2014

10:30am to 11:00am (AMT)

There is no area today where innovation is more critical than the non-profit sector. Developers around the world are building tools to help engage communities, keep governments accountable and build effective public services. What started with hackathons and side projects is now delivering sustainable businesses and nonprofits that have impact on millions. With governments opening up their data and non-profits becoming tech savvy we need to better understand what it takes to build a successful tool for social impact. During this presentation we will explore the motivations, technologies and challenges behind Google’s work in engineering for social good. We will share what we've learned about how anyone can use their unique skills to make a difference.
