do_action charity Hackathon 2019

do_action hackathons are community-organised events that are focussed on using WordPress to give deserving charitable organisations their own online presence. Each do_action event includes participants from the local WordPress community coming together to plan and build brand new websites for a number of local organisations in one day.

The WordPress Lagos community is a network of developers, designers and website builders who believe that WordPress is the perfect platform for any organisation to use to build their online presence effectively. This will be our second time holding the do_action WordPress Charity Hackathon where we spend a full day building brand new websites for a selection of local charities and NGOs. This year, for the second annual do_action event, we are going to be repeating this for a completely new set of six charitable organisations.

Who can participate?

Each of these websites will be built by a team of 6-8 people in the following roles:

  • Project managers
  • Designers
  • Content Creators
  • Social Media / Community Managers
  • Developers
  • Quality Assurance (QA) Testers
  • Accessibility Consultants

If you’re in Lagos and have some experience with, or interest in, WordPress, you can participate. Click to sign up!
