Time to Give Back?

Posted: August 16, 2011 in Career, Events, SQLServerPedia Syndication


I wish I could list all the reasons why I think a weekend with GiveCamp is a good idea, but the list is so long. When it comes to building your skill set there is nothing like working with other DBA’s as you are learning a new skill or even applying one that you already know. GiveCamp is one opportunity to do that. To top it off you get to help a non-profit organization. Think about the impact that you could have on and organization. The budgets they have are limited, and the amount of money that you can help them save, could let them put that money toward helping others.


If you are a non-profit organization and you are looking for some help with SQL Server, .Net, or other technologies don’t miss this opportunity to work with some of the best professionals in the area. I know many of these guys and gals personally and think very highly of the skill sets that they are bringing to the table. Don’t miss out.




What is a GiveCamp?

GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where technology professionals from designers, developers and database administrators to marketers and web strategists donate their time to provide solutions for non-profit organizations. Since its inception in 2007, the National GiveCamp program has provided benefits to over 150 charities, with a value of developer and designer time exceeding $1,000,000 in services!

Colorado GiveCamp is an extension of the National GiveCamp where we focus on non-profits here in Colorado.


When and Where?

The Colorado GiveCamp will be the weekend of October 21-23 at the DeVry University Greenwood Village Center campus 6312 S Fiddlers Green Cr. Ste 150 Greenwood Village, CO 80111.



Do you run or work with a non-profit that supports the community in Colorado? Overloaded with manual processes and not taking advantage of technology?
