Hackathon . . .

There is an upcoming weekend hackathon that is extremely interesting to me – it’s the Hacking Health hackathon in Vancouver.

According to their website, this event is a national organisation dedicated to fostering collaboration between health and IT experts. It’s basically an event where healthcare professionals meet technology experts to discuss and collaborate over IT solutions to solve meaningful problems and make a difference in the health of patients and communities.

Why this strikes a chord within me is because I almost went to medical school and in fact, my major in university is actually Medical Technology. I have always thought of merging my technology skills with my knowledge of the health/medical sector and this is the perfect event to do just that.
