Lansing Give Camp 2011

29 January, 2011 § 5 Comments

Earlier this week I signed up for Lansing Give Camp 2011. I’ve always wanted to volunteer for Give Camp, but never felt I had enough time. Based off of Parkinson’s First Law (“work expands to fill the time available”), I decided that if I signed up for it, I would make time for it and finish my other work in a more expedient fashion.

Give Camp is a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, and database administrators donate their time to create custom software for non-profit organizations.

The event runs March 25-27, at Impression 5 Science Center in Lansing, MI. Charities will present their projects and teams will be introduced introduced around dinner time on Friday. Midnight snacks will help keep the volunteer elves burn the midnight oil. All meals will be served Saturday, with demos taking place on Sunday afternoon.

Here is a video from Give Camp 2009:

    Hey hey Jared! Wow a lot of those Parkinson’s Laws seem true to me! That is very noble of you to volunteer your time! Be sure to let us all know how it goes!

      Hey AJ! Reading your comment makes it sound like you’re not taking part in GiveCamp. You should come along, Randall said last year was a lot of fun.

  • A.J. says:

    I very well could take part in GiveCamp this year! I’d be more willing to do just the Friday & Saturday — but it is all three days correct? I’d feel like I let you down if I just do 2 of 3 days.

      The Sunday isn’t that long, its just a couple hours. I’m sure you could sign up and just let them know that you have plans on Sunday. They would probably appreciate any amount of help.

  • A.J. says:

    Yeah! I like that! Nonetheless I will try to meet up with you during the week! Mainly to plan some fun activities!
