Follow Up on Balt GiveCamp - A Weekend of 'Coding for Charity!'

From: Erica W.
Sent on: Sunday, August 5, 2012 7:49 PM

Hey all!  Thanks for letting me speak for a couple minutes regarding the Balt GiveCamp at the last JavaScript meeting.  Below are the details, and attached is a flyer.  If interested in helping out as a Developer or Designer the weekend of Oct 19-21, just register as a Volunteer at  We have 28 non-profits we’ll be helping, including Howard County Special Olympics, Susquehanna Symphony Orchestra, Mid Atlantic Air Rescue Management, Ronald McDonald House, Angels Helping Angels, MD Fund for Unwanted Horses, and Pets on Wheels.


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.

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