#VSW2018 + #VanHacks Hackathon Mingler & Kickoff | SEPARATE TICKET REQUIRED
Limited Capacity seats available

We call you, hackers of Vancouver, to join us over a weekend to create tech solutions that solve challenging issues faced by our community's not-for-profit institutions whose aim is to do social good. This year we will be serving Ocean Wise, Weekend Fuelbag, Working Gear, BabyGoRound, Mealshare.

VanHacks is designed around the mantra of acting local and thinking global. All hacks are encouraged to be published open source so that an organization in Vancouver can benefit just as much as a similar nonprofit on the other side of Canada or the other side of the World.

VanHacks 2018 is co-organized by Vancouver Startup Week, Two Tall Totems and VIDIA. It brings together 180+ developers and designers to work towards building a better, more unified Vancouver.

You must have a hackathon ticket in order to attend this event as a #VSW2018 pass will not get you access into the hackathon.
Please visit check out http://www.vanhacks.com for more information about this event and to buy a hackathon pass.

Is Technology Taking our Jobs?
Limited Capacity filling up

Automation, driven by technological progress, has been expanding for the past several decades. As the pace of development increases, so has the urgency in the debate about the potential effects of automation on jobs, employment, and human activity.
Will new technology spawn mass unemployment, as the robots take jobs away from humans? Or is this part of a cycle in which some jobs will become obsolete, while new jobs will be created?
Based on the Oxford style debates popularized by the podcast 'Intelligence Squared', The BC chapter of Women in Communications and Technology brings you Women in Debate: Is technology taking our jobs?
You'll also have a chance to win a wine tasting at Township 7 for you and 9 friends!
