Columbus Give Camp


The Columbus Give Camp (April 1st-3rd) is a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, and database administrators donate their time to create custom software for non-profit organizations.  This custom software could be a new website for the nonprofit organization, a small data-collection application to keep track of members, or a application for the Red Cross that automatically emails a blood donor three months after they’ve donated blood to remind them that they are now eligible to donate again. The point is, Give Camp is a great way to give back to the local community by helping local non-profits while working with and learning from other developers, designers, architects and IT professionals that you might not otherwise get a chance to.

Give Camp committee member Bramha Ghosh will tell you more about Give Camp, how it works, how much fun it is and how when a few determined, passionate geeks get together, they can accomplish amazing things in the span of a couple of days. You will hear stories from the previous two Columbus Give Camps, see examples of the work that has been done find out how you can get involved.
