Event description

Description

ToryTechs is not affiliated with the Conservative Party

The Conservative party has won a huge majority. We want to use technology to help make the most of this.

How can we...

  • help new MPs get their offices setup?

  • engage people in what the government is doing?

  • help the party and MPs be more effective?

Join other Tory Technologists and designers at the first ever ToryTechs Hackathon!

We’ll be spending Saturday and Sunday the 15 & 16th building, testing, and launching tech to improve democracy, and the effectiveness of government.


What is a Hackathon?

Hackathons are weekend events for technologists, designers, and domain experts to come together and solve problems in an intensive and collaborative way.

Who can come?

Anyone can come (even if you’re not a member of the Conservative Party), we welcome your interest and would appreciate different perspectives.

Everyone is welcome, as long as they follow our code-of-conduct.
Beginners are welcome! Attendees have a huge range of skill-sets, so you'll have no problem finding someone to learn from


Location & Agenda

We will be hosted by the amazing Newspeak House in London from 15-16th February 2020


Why this Hackathon?

There are no open & transparent Tory Technology communities.

We aim for ToryTechs to be a friendly and safe place for Conservative leaning technologists who want to improve democracy.

There are various anti-tory technology communities out there, e.g. CampaignLab, and LibDem Hackathons. We aim to create a similar space, where Torys feel welcome.
