CareerDFW and Dallas GiveCamp

October 2012 - CareerDFW has been selected by the Dallas GiveCamp to be one of 15 charities to get assistance in a website makeover.


From the Dallas GiveCamp website:

What is GiveCamp?

GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where software developers, designers, database administrators and project managers 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 a 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.

The first Dallas GiveCamp was in early 2011. The original idea was to hold one event a year. Using feedback from the last event we have decided to have two events this year. This allows us to move GiveCamp away from the holidays.

In January 2012·Dallas GiveCampers gave more than 2,000 hours to charity, 1,000+ drinks were drank, 500 pieces of pizza eaten and 13 charities were helped.

Why participate in GiveCamp?
As a software developer we have special skills that we have spent years perfecting, additionally as a member of the Dallas/Ft. Worth community we have a responsibility to help our neighbors. Why not combine our passion for building great software with the overwhelming need of non-profit organizations in our neighborhoods for this software. Oh yea and it is a heck of a great time.


The CareerDFW team consist of 11 programmers, developers and an artist. Five us met on October 10, 2012 to talk about the website, become familiar with the site and talk about what they thought a great website should look like. Here are a few pictures from the event.

The CareerDFW team will be having a webinar to work on our plans in the next 10 days. Then on October 26-28, 2012, the CareerDFW website will have a makeover. In addition, CareerUSA.org, a website for the rest of the country will be launched. The website will have a new look, but all the same information.


Stay tuned for the NEW and IMPROVED CareerDFW and CareerUSA.org !
