New England GiveCamp is a charitable, community-run event at which software developers, designers, and other technical volunteers donate their skills and expertise to support area non-profit organizations.
During GiveCamp weekend 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 over a dozen New England charities.
Participants are welcome to bunk for the duration on location at the Blue Metal offices in Watertown Square - bring your sleeping bag and teddy bear! 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 event, both on site and as part of the planning effort.
