As geeks, we don’t get a lot of opportunities to give back to the community by using our skills. Luckily, there’s a great way for us to do so coming up in just a week. On the weekend of October 21st – 23rd, Orlando is joining 15 cities across the US (and UK) on National Give Camp day.
You are probably wondering what GiveCamp is! GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where technology professionals – including designers, developers and database administrators as well as marketers and web strategists donate their time and unique talents to provide software solutions for local charities and other non-profit organizations.
We have received proposals from 16 different Central Florida non-profit organizations and we are going to do our best to help all of them. These are some great causes and I’m sure that it will allow those organizations to make a huge difference in our area. So come on out and use your geek powers for a great cause!
Thanks to our awesome sponsors, we will cover your food for the weekend. We will work hard and we will try to keep it a lot of fun.
