Cleveland GiveCamp

Let's get more Drupal talent at Cleveland GiveCamp this year!

GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, database administrators, project managers and creative professionals donate their time to create software and web-based applications for non-profit organizations.

The event takes place July 19-21 at the LeanDog boat (former Hornblowers) and Burke Lakefront Airport on the shores of Lake Erie.

Lots of these non-profits would be well-served by Drupal. Show up, do good work for good projects, sharpen your skills, network, and help Drupal power more of Northeast Ohio!

    Just a reminder - You MUST ALREADY have registered via the Cleveland GiveCamp website AND received your ticket. It is great that they received over 200 volunteers, but this also means that Cleveland GiveCamp SOLD OUT before everyone who wanted to help could sign up. I did hear that most people who signed up on the waiting list did get a ticket. If you were not able to sign up for Cleveland GiveCamp, you can assist by getting the word out about the event. Please "like" Facebook.com/CLEGiveCamp, "follow" @CleGiveCamp on Twitter, and watch the #CleGC Twitter hash tag this coming week. Re-tweet/share all the excitement with your followers/friends. Promote the charities being served and thank the sponsors. Your assistance will help get the word out to local nonprofits to apply for 2014, and let the sponsors know that you appreciate the positive impact their support is having on Greater Cleveland.

    It is great to see so many Cleveland Drupal User Group members interested!

    Hi guys,

    This is my first GiveCamp and I was just wondering if anyone can give me some feedback on what to expect, what to bring and how to to approach this?

      If you have specific questions, feel free to contact me directly. Bart McPherson and others have also attended in the past and can answer questions.

      Last year was my first Givecamp. It was a great experience. There are lots of people of varying skill levels, so there is a lot of things for everyone to help with. Like stated previously, a good local test environment goes a long way. A power strip is a good thing. If you have the ability to connect your laptop to the Internet through your phone, be prepared to do that. The wireless got overwhelmed last year, it may be better this time.

    Hopefully everyone signed through the Givecamp site. It looks like all the tech spots have been filled. Join the wait list if you haven't signed up yet.

    Good question Jarrod. I'm going to make sure I have a test environment on my VPS ready to go. Not sure what else I could do to be ready. Probably a book you depend on. I tend to use one of my PHP books a lot so I might bring it.

    Great to see so many Drupal people interested in GiveCamp. IMPORTANT REMINDER: You must sign up for Cleveland GiveCamp using their website (http://clevelandgivecamp.org/volunteer/), and NOT through the Drupal Users Group MeetUp website (though it is good to know who is interested within the Cleveland Drupal User Group via Meetup). The registration for Cleveland GiveCamp is now open. Get details and sign up at: http://clevelandgivecamp.org/volunteer/

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
