While reading Mike Eaton‘s blog, I had read about Ann Arbor Give Camp. He had mentioned it in the past, so it’s nice to finally get more information.

What is a Give Camp?

A Give Camp is a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, and database administrators donate their time to create custom software for non-profit organizations. This custom software could be a new website for the nonprofit organization, a small data-collection application to keep track of members, or a application for the Red Cross that automatically emails a blood donor three months after they’ve donated blood to remind them that they are now eligible to donate again. The only limitation is that the project should be scoped to be able to be completed in a weekend.

What: Ann Arbor Give Camp – a chance for architects, DBAs, devs, and designers to get together and donate their time and talent towards projects for non-profits. The projects should be completed within the weekend.
