I had a blast participating in GiveCamp – it feels great to write code to help a great cause and I got to work with some really smart people too. I’d definitely participate again!
A great way to give back to Pittsburgh’s non-profits while working with people you wouldn’t normally meet.
Givecamp combines the fun of a hackathon with the feel good mission of helping local nonprofits. The event gave me the opportunity to work with knowledgeable people that want to make the Pittsburgh community stronger.
