Outline of the 8hr Code-a-thon Challenge

ONE Scarborough charity could be the lucky owner of a new website following a special digital event.
Science City York – which challenges participants to make a new website from scratch in eight hours – are offering their services to a Scarborough-based charity free of charge.

We are pleased to be joined by Brian Teeman - one of the founders of Joomla! and OpensSourceMatters Inc. In 2005 he was honoured to receive the "UK Individual Contribution to Open / Source" for 2005. Brian spends much of his time advising Charities and faith groups on the best ways to develop and implement an online strategy.

Everyone is welcome to take part in the challenge and skills in the following areas would be appreciated on the day – HTML & CSS design, logo/graphic design, creative/copy writers, CMS/Backend development (eg joomla) and photography. If you need a computer then you will have to provide your own laptop etc. Wi-Fi and refreshments will be provided to participants.

Spectators who want to learn a bit more about the web development process are also welcome to the event.

The Code-a-Thon is taking place at Sigma bar, at The Cask in Cambridge Terrace, on Saturday March 15 from 9am-6pm.

It will also be streamed on the web live at
