This weekend, I was supposed to be going to the Pittsburgh, PA area to help them with their first-ever GiveCamp. Unfortunately, I have to stay back due to health issues, but while I can’t be there, I want to be able to get them the help they need. One of their organizers sent this today:
Come and be a part of something
special this weekend
A small group of software developers and web site designers will be
spending this weekend helping 7 local non-profit groups to build web sites,
system integrations, and solve other technical issues. It will be a marathon
event for sure but on Sunday afternoon we will go live with all of the projects
from Pittsburgh’s first GiveCamp.
Even with all of the support there are still some technology gaps that need to
be filled and we can really use your help in these areas.
- PHP experience
- Web Design (HTML, CSS, Photoshop)
- Experience with any CMS including Drupal, DotNetNuke, Joomla, Orchard, etc.
- WordPress themes
Even if you can’t volunteer for the entire weekend, please consider
volunteering a few hours on Friday or Saturday and add your experience to one
of our projects. In just a few hours you can help make a difference to these
groups and in turn they will spend the rest of the year making a difference to
thousands of others right here in Pittsburgh.
The event is being held at the DDI offices in Bridgeville. You can find the
location and sign-up form on our web site.
If you’re able to help them, please volunteer to help them! The Pittsburgh community, from what I met in April, are a great group – yes, they seemed to like me even though I root for their rival NFL team!
