Dev4Dev Cleanweb Hackathon Wiki

Welcome to the Dev4Dev Cleanweb Hackathon Wiki[]

This wiki is a repository for information that will help developers target solutions at people groups that are far away.  We wanted a wiki where we could start aggregating information that helps people develop for people in the developing world. Facts to replace broad sweeping statements that ignorant people present so smoothly in TED talks. Mobile phone penetration, smartphone penetration, network capabilities, network coverage, how many people have data bundles, policies on healthcare data, banking, on a country by country basisAlso money and access stuff, GDP, Average salaries, political stability, religions.This is information that you need to help you target a product at a consumer who is not close to you, it doesn't mean your product will work but rather that you won't fail before you start. Why? We are trying to bridge the gap between Israel’s leading entrepreneurial and technological community and the needs of the developing world - initiated by challenges presented by our hackathon .
