2012 Balt GiveCamp - A Weekend of "Coding for Charity!"

From: Erica W.
Sent on: Tuesday, July 17, 2012 4:43 PM

The 2012 Baltimore GiveCamp ( will be held the weekend of Oct 19-21 at UMBC’s Technology building.  


What is GiveCamp


GiveCamp is a weekend of "coding for charity" that will benefit about 30 local MD non-profits with any technical needs they have that they otherwise wouldn't be able to afford (i.e. website build, website redesign, database solution, etc...).  


Last Year's GiveCamp


The 2011 Baltimore GiveCamp had 140+ Technical Volunteers (including PM’s, BA’s, Team Leads, Developers, DBA’s, Designers, and Social Media SME’s) and saved the 21 non-profits $250,000+ in technology and resource costs.


Volunteers Needed


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.


Team Leads - WE NEED YOU!


Interested in leading a team of developers? WE NEED YOU!! We are currently looking for team leads to help guide a team of 2-5 developers.  Coming up soon is our ‘Technical Analysis Day’ (requires the attendance of the Team Leads) on Saturday August 4th.   Team leads will meet with the project Business Analysis to go over the non-profit requirements to start the process of taking dreams and making them reality.


Check out the website ( for more details, and consider being part of the magic in this year’s event!
