One of my projects is serving on the Board of Directors for Seattle Give Camp starting this year. I have been an IT volunteer since 2013 in the role of project manager, which means I wear many hats. A typical hackathon mandates different roles and teamwork from everyone.
This year our annual October event will be an online due to Covid-19. We are also moving the website to a new host and adding new features. Our hackathon is 2 1/2 days and we tackle a group of projects for local charities. There is plenty of work to complete before October 23rd. Currently, I am working on the social media piece. Next, we will be evaluating and selecting approximately a dozen projects.
Everyone on the Board is adapting to the digital transformation and communication style. It is challenging, creating new norms and technical design tools in 2020.
