New England GiveCamp 2011
Friday, April 29, 2011 at 5:30 PM - Sunday, May 1, 2011 at 5:00 PM (EDT)
Cambridge, United States
New England GiveCamp is a charitable, community-run event at which software developers, designers, and other technical volunteers will donate their skills and expertise to support area non-profit organizations.
During GiveCamp weekend about 120 software and technical professionals from around New England will converge to develop pro bono custom software solutions, including web sites, content management systems, databases, and other projects for about two dozen New England charities.
Participants are welcome to bunk for the duration at the fabulous Microsoft New England Research & Development Center (aka NERD) - bring your sleeping bag and teddy bear - and plenty of food and beverages (caffeinated and not) will be on hand to see you through the event.
Volunteers are the life-blood of GiveCamp, and regardless of your technical background or the amount of time you have to contribute, there's a place for you to help.
- If you're a technical professional that can set aside the entire weekend, we invite you to work as part of a team assigned to a specific non-profit's project. All experience levels and technology and design backgrounds are welcome.
- If you can't commit for the entire weekend, or if you'd like to help in a non-technical capacity, there's plenty of other options to participate in this eventâ€”both on site and as part of the planning effort.
