CrisisCamp Day of Discovery and Learning
Saturday, September 25, 2010 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (EDT)
CrisisCamp is a volunteer technical community open to students, professionals and ninjas.
Come Learn and Create with us.
CrisisCommons.org is a global network of volunteers who use creative problem solving and open technologies in partnership with NGO's and aid agencies to help people and communities in times and places of crisis. We seek not only coders, programmers, geospatial and visualization ninjas but collaborative, smart and savvy folks who can lead teams, manage projects, search the internet, translate languages. We embrace innovation and open systems.
