This weekend (April 4th-6th, 2014), I’ll be gathering with over a hundred developers, designers, project managers, and strategists at the Microsoft New England Research and Development center for New England GiveCamp 2014. We’ll spend the weekend – with many participants quite literally camping in the building and working through the night – designing, building, and enhancing websites and applications for non-profit, mission-oriented organizations from Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
GiveCamp is a fantastic event. I spoke at GiveCamp 2012 about Digital Strategy in the non-profit context, and then served as team lead in 2013. This year I look forward to just volunteering as a developer. Although many different technical platforms and languages are used at GiveCamp, my experience has been WordPress dominates the conversation and is used for the great majority of the projects.
