Digital dancing reindeer, a virtual desktop xmas tree, xmas carols on your iPad, the 'pass the parcel' app, virtual christmas service; Christmas is ripe for digital modernisation. 

If you're a developer, designer or entrepreneur come along and pit your brains and skills with other smart people to create smart apps, products, sites and services that make a difference in the world - and put your name on the map.

There's a £1,000 prize for the first app to market that uses the brand new TheGivingLab api's, payable when it takes it's first donation or payment. It could be the perfect Christmas gift ....

The weekend will provide a strong mentorship programme, with people from tech, charity and press, helping teams to achieve their aims and launch a product into real life as fast as possible.
