The ann arbor Give Camp is July 11-13 at Washtenaw Community College - less than two weeks away.  For those who haven't heard, this is a great opportunity to contribute to some worthy causes, flex your tech muscles and network with the developer community. 

At this event, software developers, DBA, project managers and UI designers will get together and develop projects for local charities.  So many charities requested projects for this camp that most had to be turned away due to lack of resources.  The more people involved, the more charities we can help.  The facilities will be available and staffed round-the-clock on this weekend and refreshments will be provided.  For security reasons, you must register in advance in order to participate.  Jennifer Marsman of Microsoft is organizing the camp. 

I will be out of town with my son the weekend of the event, but I volunteered to help with some of the evaluations of the projects because it I really wanted to contribute.

You can get more information and you can register for this great outing at http://www.annarborgivecamp.org/.  If you will be in town, please take a look and consider giving your time.
