Good afternoon all! 

 

I wanted to make sure any of you who might be interested in this type of event were aware of a local philanthropic event where Designers & Software Engineers “code for a cause!”  Below are the details of the local Philly GiveCamp event, which is a weekend long event that develops technical solutions for non-profits.  There are 40 non-profits who are looking for help that weekend, including: United Way, Kitchen of Love, the World Peace Club, etc…  They're looking to do many of these projects in WordPress, which is why I wanted to communicate it to your WordPress Group (also in the hope you’d forward this info along to anyone else you know who might be interested in donating some of their time that weekend for a great cause!). 

 

If you are interested in volunteering as a Designer or Developer, just register as soon as you can at www.phillygivecamp.org!  Again, if you happen to know any other folks with WordPress experience who'd be interested in this technical philanthropic event, please forward this along to them!  The more, the merrier, especially so we can accommodate and help as many of the 40 charities as possible!

 

 

The 2013 Philly GiveCamp (www.phillygivecamp.org) will be held the weekend of January 18-20 at Microsoft’s Microsoft Office in Malvern, PA (Great Valley Corporate Center, 45 Liberty Blvd., Suite 210, Malvern, PA 19355)

What is GiveCamp?

GiveCamp is a weekend of "coding for charity" that will benefit about 40 local Philly non-profits with any technical needs they have that they otherwise wouldn't be able to afford (i.e. logo, website build, website redesign, enhancements, database solution, etc...). GiveCamp is a great way for Technologists to give back to their local communities!  

 

Technical Volunteers Needed (especially Software Developers and Designers!!!)

We're looking for everyone; we want the code ninja and the n00b. Designers, database administrators, quality assurance pros and the "average users" who like to break things, mobile application enthusiasts, chair-lifters and swag-organizers, network systems administrators, web developers, generic code monkeys, social media and digital communication specialists, and software architects. Give Camp is language and technology agnostic, and although a familiarity with Content Management Systems is useful for many of the projects, it is not a requirement.

 

Please note that you do not have to commit to the entire weekend; you can commit to one of the days.  Also, you are able to go home and sleep.
