Columbus GiveCamp 2011

This weekend I participated in the 2011 Columbus Give Camp. Give Camps are weekend long events where developers and designers donate their time to help out worth charities. A good majority of the time projects are to create or update charity websites but it is by no means limited to that.

This year there were 5 charites that were lucky enough to be selected:

  • Ohio WildLife Center
  • Northwest Plains District Family Church Camp
  • Gallery 202: Partners in Art
  • Interface Center of Peace
  • Pets Without Parents

I was on a team with my co-workers at Quick Solutions, Inc. We were privlidged to get to work for the charity Pets Without Parents. The team updated the current plain static pages to a SiteFinity backed CMS solution. We have some training with the charity so currently the new site isn’t live for the public yet but it will be soon.

It was a wonderful weekend and I had a great time. If you’re in the area please think about helping out next year!
