This weekend I had a chance, thanks to Ian Muir, to present at New England GiveCamp. GiveCamps are an international phenomena, in which developers and designers (and marketing and strategy folk) get together with non-profit organizations over a weekend to build or enhance sites (happily, many on Drupal and WordPress) for those charities.
New England GiveCamp ran all weekend (May 4-6) at the Microsoft NERD Center in Kendall Square, and feature 29 different non-profits and over 110 volunteers. You can read more about it on their news feed which is also frequently linking to blog entries by attendees.
I hope next year to be able to attend and do some development, not just drop in and chat about strategy, but it was great to be able to be involved.
Here’s the deck I used to drive the conversation.
