Centric Indianapolis Participates in 2012 Indy GiveCamp
Indianapolis, IN – October 3, 2012 — Centric Indianapolis is sending two developers to participate in a weekend-long Indy GiveCamp event to benefit local nonprofits.
The event, taking place Friday, Oct. 5 through Sunday, Oct. 7, is a time where software developers, designers and database administrators donate their time to create custom software for nonprofit organizations.
This year, Indy GiveCamp participants will support a number of nonprofits including, Stop the Violence, Motus Dance, Indiana Juvenile Justice Task Force, Indy Irishfest and Junior Achievement.
“Giving time to charitable organizations such Indy GiveCamp supports one our our core values to ‘Ignite Passion for the Greater Good,'” said Paul Yager, a Senior Consultant in Indianapolis. “Sponsoring events such as this is a great way to give back to organizations that are doing great work in our city.”
GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, and database administrators donate their time to create custom software for nonprofit 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 a blood donor three months after they’ve donated blood to remind them that they are now eligible to donate again. The only limitation is that the project should be scoped to be able to be completed in a weekend.
During GiveCamp, developers are welcome to go home in the evenings or camp out all weekend long. There is usually food and drink provided at the event. There are sometimes even game systems set up for when you and your team needs a little break! Overall, it’s a great opportunity for people to work together, develop new friendships and do something important for their community. Learn more about Indy GiveCamp
