Returning to Maryland for a third consecutive year is GiveCamp, the weekend-long hackathon whereby developers and designers donate their time and services to producing websites, databases and mobile apps for nonprofits. Last year volunteers contributed more than $320,000 in services to 28 area nonprofits, say organizers.
This year 30 nonprofits, including Moveable Feast and the Velocipede Bike Project and, are looking for online assistance, said coorganizer Erica Woods.
Baltimore GiveCamp kicks off Oct. 18 at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. More information and volunteer registration here.
Participants can either stay at UMBC all weekend, and use the floors as beds, or leave each evening. But all source code developed over the weekend must be turned over to the respective nonprofits by weekend’s end.-30-
