Johnny Long and Hackers for Charity

Presented at DEF CON 19 (2011), Unknown date/time (Unknown duration)

Picking on charities is just plain rude. Thankfully, that's not what we're about. We're about proving that hackers have amazing skills that can transform charitable organizations. We're about stepping into the gap to feed and educate the world's most vulnerable citizens. We are virtual, geographically diverse and different. We've fed thousands of families through our "food for work" program We build computer labs to help students learn skills and land jobs that are key to disrupting poverty's vicious cycle.We provide technical assistance to charities and non-profits that can not afford IT services.We provide job experience and references to our volunteers.
