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.
NashDotNet has had a big presence at Nashville’s two previous Give Camps. It’s a lot of work, but a lot of fun. When the next one rolls around (probably October 2012), we will be sure to use our megaphone to tell everyone about it.
