DLL Storify of #MBKHack in Oakland, CA -- Friday 2/20/15 to Sunday 2/22/15

Its Website declares that the mission of Qeyno Labs is to "transform children's lives and give them the power to transform their worlds through social innovation, education, and technology." Hackathons are Qeyno's most important tool for fulfilling this mission. Indeed, Qeyno has made "hackathon" a household word in hundreds of homes. (Interested readers should check out the mini-documentary about Qeyno that was produced by MSNBC.)

Based in Oakland, CA, Qeyno partnered with #YesWeCode on two hackathons in other cities in 2014 ==> at the Essence Festival in New Orleans in July and at the first first #MBKHack in Philadelphia in November. This weekend's #MBKHack in Oakland is therefore a sweet homecoming. The DLL Storified tweets from participants who used hashtag = #MBKHack  ...
