Helpful information for attendees and presenters

Information about HOPE is available online at This wiki will be supporting conference planning and implementation.

Information for volunteers

See our Volunteering page for a synopsis of roles. Utilize the email group list you are already on, to ask questions or check in. You can also use the volunteer area of the Matrix chat.

We want to help give back by holding a fundraiser for the EFF during the nine days of HOPE. We believe we can bring in $10,000 over that period. Throughout the conference, many EFF people will be giving talks on topics like the evils of Ring, mobile privacy, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, facial recognition, and more. And the traditional "Ask the EFF" panel is always a favorite with our attendees.

So please join with us and be among the first to support EFF so they'll be there for all of us in the future. We have a feeling we're going to be needing them.

Hackers Helping to Fight COVID-19

The unprecedented health threats and global response to the COVID-19 pandemic have impacted everyone.
Many hackers, makers, educators, and others have put their skills to use by contributing to solutions to a wide range of challenges.

These contributions are the essence of the hacker spirit: People using their skills, intelligence and energy to help other people. Hackers are helping by designing, making and distributing much-needed medical supplies. They are helping by creating communication forums, informative websites, software, and safe entertainment. They are helping by fighting disinformation, and doing research and experimentation to investigate solutions and mitigations.

On this page, we have collected links to some of the projects, products, groups, and activities that highlight how hackers are helping.
