As part of the Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action, DocuSign has partnered with Team Rubicon to help the disaster response organization streamline its ability to respond more efficiently to humanitarian disasters.
Are you a developer? Come join DocuSign’s engineers, product planners, support, and community staff to lend your expertise in what we’re calling a “hack-for-good” on Wednesday April 6, 2016 and Thursday April 7, 2016. It’s all happening during our MOMENTUM’16 event, in our DocuSign DevLounge at the Grand Hyatt Union Square hotel in San Francisco. Not only will you feel great about lending your coding skills to help in humanitarian disasters, but you’ll have a great time, learn a lot, meet great people, and maybe even take home some cool prizes:
- Anyone who registers for the hack-for-good will receive a free Team Rubicon T-Shirt.
- Everyone loves T-Shirts, but if you submit working code at the end of the hack-for-good, we’ll give you a Raspberry PI 3 (the newest version – hot off the presses).
- If your code submission is judged to be one of the top 5 finalists, each member of your team will receive an Amazon Echo.
- If that isn’t cool enough, each member of the team submitting the top winning entry will receive a really cool prize. We can’t say what it is just yet, but trust us – you’ll love it!
The goal of this “hack-for-good” is to create an app for a variety of disaster response needs, including volunteer registration and onboarding, mobile embedded signing, Box integration, and more. We’ll discuss more on-site, but please visit the DocuSign Developer Center to get familiar with the DocuSign API and come with your ideas.
Do you have to be an experienced DocuSign API developer? Absolutely not! In fact, be one of the first 100 people to sign up for the “hack-for-good” and we’ll give you a free pass to attend these two Developers@MOMENTUM’16 sessions:
- Developer Tools and Platform Roadmap on April 6, 2016 from 1:30pm – 2:15pm
- Getting Started with the DocuSign API on April 6, 2016 from 2:30pm – 3:15pm
Are you ready to do some good (hacking that is)? Just click this registration link and select the Developer Track option. From there, you’ll be presented with additional options; one is to register for the hack-for-good only and, if you are one of the first 100 people, there will be another option to register and also attend the two free sessions. You can, of course, also elect to attend the full conference. Anyone who attends is also eligible to participate in the hack-for-good benefiting Team Rubicon. If you have any questions, just email me at Marie.Huwe@DocuSign.com
About Team Rubicon
Team Rubicon unites the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams. Since its founding in 2010, Team Rubicon has deployed on over 120 disaster relief operations around the world. They currently maintain a growing roster of 35,000 volunteer members who are ready to deploy. Military veterans have the unique skills and experiences necessary to respond safely, rapidly and effectively in the wake of disasters. Team Rubicon seeks to provide our veterans with three things they lose after leaving the military: a purpose, gained through disaster response; community, built by serving with others; and identity, created by joining a new mission. By providing veterans a mission that helps them regain a sense of purpose, community and identity, Team Rubicon is building the strongest, most effective cadre of disaster response workers in the world.
Between and during disaster response operations, Team Rubicon engages their members in training, service projects, and social events. Team Rubicon has adopted FEMA’s National Incident Management System, which gives their disaster response teams an advantage in being able to communicate and interact seamlessly with federal, state and county agencies. Engaging both veterans and civilians as Team Rubicon volunteers promotes veteran reintegration and bridges the gap between military and civilian life.
The CTO of Team Rubicon, Steve Hunt, and members of his team will be onsite with us in the DocuSign DevLounge for the hack-for-good. And they will bring with them one of their cool t-shirts for everyone who participates. Join us at the Grand Hyatt in San Francisco and help make a difference for Team Rubicon and disaster response organizations around the globe.
