Information systems alumnus Douglas McCaw ‘99, a senior software engineer at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab, is organizing Baltimore GiveCamp. The event, a weekend-long hack-a-thon, invites more than 230 software developers, designers and database administrators donate their time to help 30 nonprofit organizations with various technical projects. GiveCamp will take place at UMBC on October 18-20 and is sponsored by the Department of Information Systems.
From the event’s press release:
Projects include creating websites, redesigning websites, building databases, and applying technology to meet critical nonprofit needs. The 2013 GiveCamp will also feature a day of topics and tutorials that are open to any area nonprofit, known as “Seminar Saturday.” Technology, strategy, and marketing experts will share their knowledge and perspectives across many topics to help nonprofits better serve the community.
