GiveCamp 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 an 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.
During GiveCamp, developers are welcome to go home in the evenings or camp out all weekend long. There are usually food and drink provided at the event. There are sometimes even game systems set up for when you and your team needs a little break! Overall, it’s a great opportunity for people to work together, developing new friendships, and doing something important for their community.
At GiveCamp, there is an expectation of “What Happens at GiveCamp, Stays at GiveCamp”. Therefore, all source code must be turned over to the non-profits at the end of the weekend (developers cannot ask for payment) and the non-profits are responsible for maintaining the code moving forward (non-profits cannot expect the developers to maintain the codebase).
We would like to thank our Sponsors for making the 2012 Indy GiveCamp possible!
