The iHope Hackathon 2017 was a weekend-long innovation competition to design and build technology tools that respond to specific community needs related to homelessness in Bakersfield, CA. It was held Oct. 13th through the 15th 2017 at The Mission at Kern County. Three developers, Christian Chavez, Lizandro Perez, and Omar Oseguera from Peacekeeper Enterprises participated in the iHope Hackathon 2017 and their team, “Mission Outreach”, won first place! Christian, Omar, Cesar Nuno, and Miguel Trigueros of Team “Mission Outreach” are also students at Cal State Bakersfield (CSUB).
Their winning project entry consisted of a bar code scanning mobile app and website which would allow organizations that provide services to the homeless to better track and manage demand. The website can also be used to register homeless and find information (such as contact info and map location) about other non profit organizations.
Congratulations to Christian, Lizando, Omar, Cesar, and Miguel of Team “Mission Outreach” for winning first place at iHope Hackathon 2017!
