Fishackathon Jakarta 2018

HackerNest (a non-profit organization which builds technology communities around the world) and the U.S. Department of State proudly presents Fishackathon Jakarta 2018! Fishackathon is a type of hackathon, a competition with the objective of creating solutions for given problems with the usage of programming technology. This year’s Fishackathon will be taking place simultaneously in more than 50 cities around the world.

This year’s theme is sustaining the fisheries industry currently in Indonesia and the world. Fishackathon inspires the creation of digital solutions to face the challenges that the fisheries’ industry has to offer, seen from the challenge sets that will be given to solve. These challenge sets will be given after participants have registered and participants will directly start to design their solutions, then execute their designs through the programs that they will create in the Fishackathon.
Overfishing and other serious problems harm marine environments and can devastate already-struggling, small-scale fishing marketplaces and communities, many of them in developing countries. Protections exist, but actual enforcement faces major obstacles.
To combat this, Fishackathon brings together thousands of concerned designers, developers, and subject matter experts for a weekend to build practical tech solutions to endemic problems defined by the world’s most renowned fisheries experts. Each team can be composed of one to five people.
This year’s Fishackathon will take place at Greenhouse Cowork, a Penthouse coworking space which offers a green environment (featuring more than 100 plants) and hospitable experience for its users. It has been a great venue partner with Fishackathon, as we believe that there are strong synergies between both organizations. As their General Manager, Viktor Kyosev, has stated, “Greenhouse strives to support both the startup scene of Indonesia as well as green initiatives aiming to impact positively the world at large. Therefore, we are glad to offer our support to HackerNest and Fishackathon’s mission of sustaining the fisheries industry.”  Their support for the development of new ideas is the crucial element of being able to realize Fishackathon’s ideals.
