About dsmHack
dsmHack is a not-for-profit organization working to elevate and strengthen the community by building software, learning from each other and giving back. The organization centers around the idea of “Build.Learn.Give.”, which includes building technology solutions and relationships throughout the community, learning new skills or thought processes, and giving time and skills to those nonprofits who need, but cannot afford it. The 48-hour hackathon is planned by a committee of representatives from various companies throughout Des Moines and is not tied to a single organization or sponsor.
