Computer Weekly was invited to Trans*Code’s first ever hackday, which took place 28 March at GoCardless.
Trans*Code was formed to draw attention to transgender issues through hackathons and programming workshops.
The day ran from 8am-7pm and produced ideas such as:
- A mobile app to enable trans people to call for help from a support network if they get caught in a difficult social situation
- A website for finding gender neutral toilets (based on OpenStreetMap)
- A website to help trans people find a personal style that suits their often unconventional body shapes
- A tool for analyzing attitudes towards trans people on Twitter
- A mobile app for safely tracking hormone balance
Francine Beleyi attended for Computer Weekly to find out what the Trans community has to offer for the technology world.
