Philly GiveCamp Volunteer Opportunity for Coders, Designers, etc.

Collegeville, PA
Post #: 4

The 2013 Philly GiveCamp ( 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.
