2nd Annual Michigan Give Camp in Ann Arbor
Friday, July 17, 2009 at 5:00 PM - Sunday, July 19, 2009 at 6:00 PM (EDT)
A Give Camp is a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, and database administrators(at all levels) donate their time to create custom software for non-profit organizations. This custom software could be a new website for the non-profit organization, a small data-collection application to keep track of members, or a application for the Red Cross that automatically emails a blood donor three months after they’ve donated blood to remind them that they are now eligible to donate again. The only limitation is that the project should be scoped to be able to be completed in a weekend.
During the Give Camp, developers are welcome to go home in the evenings or camp out all weekend long. There will be food and drinks provided at the event. There will also be XBOXs set up for when you need a little break.
At the Give Camp, there is an expectation of “What Happens at Give Camp, Stays at Give Camp”. 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).
The 2nd Annual MIchigan Give Camp in Ann Arbor Give Camp will be held the weekend of July 17-19 at Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, MI.
