Migrahack México: A Collaboration that Crossed Borders, Disciplines and Cultures

"Immigration crosses borders, sectors and cultures, so it is fitting that a hackathon on immigration would bring together Mexicans, Americans and Mexican Americans; journalists, programmers, nonprofits and other community members.

Migrahack México was our largest Migrahack to date and one of the largest hackathons ever held in México. More than 120 people came to the training day, from veteran programmers looking to take their work to the next level to those who had never before worked with data visualization. 

Nearly 100 people stayed through the weekend to work on 15 projects. The work touched on the diverse issues that immigration encompasses, including the budget of the Mexican government, the massacres of migrants, human rights violations and the ordeal of deported women." - IJJ, Apr. 7, 2014.
