Friday, January 7, 2011 from 3:30 PM – 6:00 PM (CT) (Every two weeks)
Entrepreneurs face an endless array of issues worthy of attention everyday. The simple fact is you can’t deal with all of them, which is a primary reason Tech Ranch Austin created Tech Ranch Campfire.
01/14-16 AUSTIN GIVECAMP
Friday, January 14, 2011 – Sunday, January 16, 2011 (weekend-long)
GiveCamp 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 an application for the Red Cross that automatically emails donors a reminder when they are eligible to give blood again. The only limitation is that the project should be scoped to be able to be completed in a weekend.
