Last weekend was the first NYC GiveCamp. It was part of a National GiveCamp weekend where in 14 US cities, teams of designers, developers and database administrators donated their time and expertise to complete an IT project – usually custom software or a new website – to benefit a charity in their community. It was an event that takes a lot of work, time and commitment, and relies on volunteers to organize.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to participate in this amazing event. However, my teammate Rachel Appel was very involved, along with a cast of many other local folks who dedicated their weekend to this great cause. Rachel has just posted a ‘wrap-up’ of the event on her blog. I thought it was worth sharing here and pointing you folks to go read it.
I hope to be able to participate in this type of event next year if it comes together again!
