The .bible registry team was encouraged to see innovative project ideas getting developed at the San Francisco Bay area hackathon in September 2016. Among all the hackathon projects posted at the devpost.com website, 6 out of 15 projects were related to the Bible:
Echo Audio Bible http://devpost.com/software/alexa-audio-bible
WeChat Gospel Guide bot http://devpost.com/software/wechat-bible-bot
Treasured Word http://devpost.com/software/treasured-word
ReadScripture.org Chrome Extension http://devpost.com/software/readscripture-org-chrome-extension
Ocean’s Deep Encounters http://devpost.com/software/ocean-s-deep-encounters-guided-christian-meditation-po27i3
This is one of the main reasons that .bible was launched, as stated in our mission statement: The mission of .BIBLE is to encourage Bible engagement, translation, innovation, and global partnerships so that all people may experience the life-changing message of the Bible.
And on this coming weekend, October 21-23, our .bible registry team will be at the Dallas location for the Code for the Kingdom global hackathon. With a total of 12 locations for this weekend’s hackathon, we hope to see at least a dozen good Bible hackathon projects!
