Hackademy is an informal learning institution by the web community of Radiobubble. Its legal basis is a non-profit cooperative society, founded by several core members of the Radiobubble community. The aim of the cooperative is to grow towards several directions, through relevant activities, in accordance to its social character.
The basic and primary activity of the cooperative is the development of several Hackademy learning programs as well as setting up hackademy.edu.gr, a website related to these programs. The aim is to make hackademy.edu.gr grow as a repository of research and knowledge.
The Hackademy founding team aspires that the project will serve as a hub of interconnection between the three decisive poles of the media ecosystem: the civil society, media professionals & media organizations and the academic society.
Hackademy and its educational programs were designed by four members of the Radiobubble community, known in Twitter as @O_Kanalarhis, @galaxyarchis and @doleross.
