What is GiveCamp?
GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, database administrators and project managers 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.
The first Dallas GiveCamp was in early 2011. The original idea was to hold one event a year. Using feedback from the last event we have decided to have two events this year. This allows us to move GiveCamp away from the holidays.
Last January Dallas GiveCampers gave more than 2,000 hours to charity, 1,000+ drinks were drank, 500 pieces of pizza eaten and 13 charities were helped.
Why participate in GiveCamp?
As a software developer we have special skills that we have spent years perfecting, additionally as a member of the Dallas/Ft. Worth community we have a responsibility to help our neighbors. Why not combine our passion for building great software with the overwhelming need of non-profit organizations in our neighborhoods for this software. Oh yea and it is a heck of a great time.
