Hi, I’m Kyle, an engineer here at Tumblr. I work on search and other cool stuff that makes Tumblr the best blogging platform in the world.
This Martin Luther King Day weekend, Tumblr and the Black Techies, an organization I founded to promote diversity in engineering, are collaborating to host a hackathon. The MLK DreamCode Hackathon will take place at Tumblr HQ beginning the morning of Saturday, January 18th and go on through the evening of Sunday, January 19th.
I’m excited because we’ve invited a diverse group of engineers and designers to take part. Over the 30 hours, we hope to see hacks that further Dr. King’s values of equality, peace, and social justice.
I’ll be blogging the events from the Dream Code Hackathon at mlkdreamcode.tumblr.com. Be sure to follow the mlkdreamcode blog and use the #mlkDreamCode tag for your hacks.
