Does your idea of a perfect weekend involve writing code, eating pizza, and working with other local-area IT professionals? Well, if you’re a developer, designer, DBA, etc. and you enjoy at least one of the three, this event might be for you.
The Central Texas GiveCamp event allows area developers to volunteer their time to help local non-profit and charity organizations. I participated a couple of years ago (unfortunately, not for the whole weekend code-a-thon), and had a great time. I think it was a great opportunity to meet other developers and to help design and implement solid technical solutions on a tight timeframe (and who isn’t used to doing that?).
