Event description

Description

To volunteer for the event (i.e., you are a software developer, designer, project manager, etc.) just click on the "Register" button above.

If you have a non-profit that wants to submit a proposal, please go here instead.

GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, and database administrators donate their time to create custom software for non-profit organizations. This custom software could be a new website for the nonprofit 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 GiveCamp, volunteers are welcome to go home in the evenings or camp out all weekend long. There is food and drink provided at the event. Overall, it’s a great opportunity for people to work together, develop new friendships, and do 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 volunteers to maintain the codebase).

See our website (http://clevelandgivecamp.org/) for more details.
