The Globe and Mail Centre, Toronto, Canada


Our DNA is Digital

This year’s Gift the Code is going to be a smash! We’re hosting our third annual hackathon at the new, beautiful Globe and Mail Centre in downtown Toronto.

Since 2016, the annual Gift the Code Hackathon has had a simple purpose at its core: to help our community by leveraging our collective skills and use digital for good to help bridge the tech gap faced by local charities.

We bring together coders, developers, designers, coaches, mentors and many more smart people, and we pair them up with charities. We’re looking for a diverse group of keeners with big brains and even bigger hearts. Everyone works together over an intensive weekend to solve a problem and have an amazing time. The challenges are positive, the end result is useable, open-source code that can be used by anyone, and we’re all in good company.

Join in on the Fun!
