What happens at #GKHack21
It is a fact that we all need to adapt to new ways, build our society to be responsive to forced change.
We need a kulchural shift - GKHack21 provides that platform to Hack The Kulcha (the known kulcha) in order to help everyone adapt to change.
Grab a cup of coffee, put on your headsets to your favorite music, get your environment ready and let's build/design.
You have freedom to use tools of choice in developing your solution - we recommend Open Source. Stay focused.
Our world is upside down and hope seem to diminish in parts and groups of our normal society - we are at a point of a need to adapt. How wil technology play a partner in helping civilization pull through? #GKHack21 challenges Geeks to hack, build and enhance common cultures.
As Geekulcha turns 8 years old in 2021, we are challenging the Geeks to build a more inclusive Geek Culture, enable collaboration and means for mass digital emancitipation.
If anything that the Covid-19 pandemic has taught us use: planning, preparation and forecasting are very key and will determine how humanity will survive. Healthcare and well-being can depend on behavioral change. How do we Hack The Kulcha?
A greater part of our country is still digitally divided and as such, are about able to fully participate in the Digital or Internet Economy. How do we localise, build and optimize solutions for mass consumption? Help the common society adapt better.

AAT draws on this as a purposeful planning principle, enabling the development team to maintain a single core of regulatory business logic (read: CPA and PoPI compliant!) through a central hosted database while exposing the vital information across multiple device agnostic channels.
Moses Mhlwana and his three friends have created a prototype of a smart water tank that saves water by enabling water users to digitally select the amount of water they need. It then releases the exact amount of water required. In cases of errors resulting in water spills‚ it would not be wasted.
Geekulcha believes in the African proverb that it takes a village to raise a child and as such, calls on the industry to support the local Geek Culture through #GKHack21.
