CrisisCamp is a national event to develop technology tools to assist in times of crisis--particularly in support of the recent Haitian earthquake disaster.

Some local community members are putting a local version together to bring our unique perspective to the group. This looks to be a great event to kickstart our service projects, for those who are interested. Everyone is invited to help whether they are a developer or not. There are list of potential needs below.

The event is still in the planning stages, so updates will be frequent through out the week.

Here are some additional resources about the event.
