It was great to take a quick moment to stop by GiveCampMemphis today. Volunteers, matched with a non-profit, develop applications or components for that organization’s benefit. The applications are built in an extreme process of live, all persons involved are together for the weekend, focused on the project. The experience is completely different from a classic development track. That’s very cool for the project, the volunteers, and the organization. But the real home-run of GiveCamp is the people volunteering for their community’s non-profit. I’m always for a situation of this type addressing a non-profit’s need instead of a tax paid solution. Big hat tips organizer Brian Swanson, and the few volunteers/participants I knew: Beth Sanders, Mark Dinstuhl, Phillip Black, and James Ruffer, plus all those I didn’t. Thanks for being so awesome!
