A special thanks to all of our volunteers that made GiveCamp 2012 a success
Pittsburgh GiveCamp 2013 Update!
Yes, we are planning to have another GiveCamp in 2013. We trying to organize a weekend in September and will let everyone know as soon as we can lock it in.
Please stay tuned and follow us on Twitter for the latest info.
What is it?
"GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where technology professionals from designers, developers and database administrators to marketers and web strategists donate their time to provide solutions for non-profit organizations." (GiveCamp) The only limitation is that the project needs to be completed in one weekend.
During GiveCamp, developers are welcome to go home in the evenings or camp out all weekend long. Meals, snacks and soft drinks are provided for the entire weekend.
So, where do you begin? Well, we're looking for volunteers, sponsors and non-profits so the odds are we need you! Whichever you qualify for, check out the corresponding pages for more information. No matter how you get there, we look forward to seeing you in October!
As with all GiveCamps, our intent is to provide technology resources to help local non-profits. By donating our time, we will provide non-profits with a new web site or tool that will allow them to serve more people, and thus free their limited resources to be reallocated to other areas.
The idea of GiveCamp was hatched by Chris Koenig, Developer Evangelist for Microsoft, as a way to channel the raw energy of the local Dallas developer community towards something that would benefit the local community. The first event was held at the Microsoft Dallas offices and served 18 charities with over 80 developers. Check out this video by Chris about what GiveCamp is.
Since that time, GiveCamp has grown into a national movement with local GiveCamps springing up all over the country and over 24 national official sponsors through the central website GiveCamp.org. Check out the massive list of national partners!
From the organizers, "We hope to see you in October!"
