Seattle Give Camp
The Seattle Give Camp is on!
GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, project managers, marketing specialists and database administrators donate their time to create custom software for non-profit organizations. The only limitation is that the project should be scoped to be able to be completed in a weekend.
During GiveCamp, developers are welcome to go home in the evenings or camp out all weekend long. There are usually food and drink provided at the event. There are sometimes even game systems set up for when you and your need a little break! Overall, it's a great opportunity for people to work together, developing new friendships, and doing something important for their community.
At GiveCamp, there is an expectation of "What Happens at GiveCamp, Stays at GiveCamp". Therefore, all source code must be turned over to the charities at the end of the weekend (developers cannot ask for payment) and the charities are responsible for maintaining the code moving forward (charities cannot expect the developers to maintain the codebase).
If you are looking to make a difference and use your skills to assist others, this is the place to be January 14th-16th, 2011!
