Live Blogging from the 2009 Give Camp


Today, we kicked off simultaneous Give Camps in Ann Arbor, Columbus, and Knoxville!  I'm at the Ann Arbor camp.  At this location, here is the breakdown of technologies used on our 16 projects for nonprofit organizations. 

  • DotNetNuke - 5
  • ASP.NET - 2
  • WinForms - 1
  • Joomla - 6
  • WordPress - 1
  • Ruby - 1

There are 55 developer volunteers here in Ann Arbor, plus staff and some charity representatives. 

There are a lot of positive improvements at the Ann Arbor Give Camp this year.  First of all, we have access to showers!  This is especially nice for people who travel in for the camp and live too far away to go home at night.  Secondly, Josh Holmes brought a popup camper, with running water, a stove, and room to sleep 5 people.   Third, we have a source control server set up for the developers.  Finally, we have webcams set up in all three locations!  Watch our fun this weekend, streaming live:
